06/2012 Creation of the foundation by Deyan Parouchev, Elena Paroucheva and Valka Parusheva
Parushev works in the area of abstract painting until the year 2000, using oil on canvas techniques. Since 2000 he is working with paper while developing his own technique of layering of semi-transparent paper. This method helps him express to the greatest extent his refined soulfulness and aesthetic vision. Although Parushev defines himself as a collagist (in line with the definition of “collage”, i.e. “Pasting together”, he attains an exquisite expressive complexity on a par with that of painting. Art critiques define it as painting with paper.
A world of paper...
Using his original technique of working with paper, Parushev reaches a harmonious balance of expression in congruity with his real essence, a delicate, exquisite and refined human being. All of this seeps through his complex compositions, always precise and well-balanced, carrying a unique metaphysical mark. His paintings are not only an expression of an aesthetic vision; they also reflect their author’s spiritual state.
Even the titles of his paintings are determined by the perceptions embodied by them. He always spent the necessary amount of time even to name his paintings – this just came across my mind right now, but I am not an art specialist or a painter - so, please do not take it too professionally.
