In her paintings, Lyliana Petrova Lulu takes us on a voyage through her inner Self, through passages of time which result in the creation of works with fairytale atmospheres that lead us to a world of fascination and dreams. In her work,the colors, which suggest a gradated, transparent color scheme beyond which we can see the infinite, become more definite and incisive without betraying a certain levity that leads us to imagine universes and places enclosed in her poetic soul. Brushstroke after brushstroke, the artist tells of a world where marks are precursors of hidden unconscious desires that open into scenes that recall mysterious paths of imagination from whence an old ship can pitch between the sweet waves of a sea of colors. The paradoxes of imagination lead through the stars to land upon the joy of bright colors that illuminate arenas veiled in sadness. With defined lines, Lilyana Petrova encloses shapes and toned areas that quickly chase the ideas that overlap in her narratives. The works of the artist are intimate trails that look to the aspirations and desires that attempt to mark the journeys of life, which bend to escape the fearful, sudden precipices: the insidiousness of the unknown. These are mental places that tell of fantasies, departures and returns: of infinite blues where stars keep secrets and where thoughts can roll in the heavens, managing to defy the conditions leading to man’s conformity and finding a long desired and protected freedom in the folds of a slender, persistent melancholy.
