Suddenly Angels /intermezzo is an exhibition of new works and a series of paintings inspired by Frantz Kafka. The paintings are centered in Migirov’s ability to empathize, explore and internalize the depths and humanity of Kafka’s always challenging moral dilemmas. Her paintings are expressions of herself, striking images that are reflections of Kafka themes, rather than illustrations. Her talent lies in her freedom to think, and her ability to express herself without mannerism or guises. She is imbued with passion, honesty and love of mankind. She brings to her work a poetic innocence that is genuine and compassionate. Lovers and angels, are part of another series of works in this exhibition, while still reflective of Kafka, we encounter a more personal and intimate body of works. The layers of textures and minimalistic palette remain, as does her intuitive sense of composition. Lela Migirov has mastered one of the most difficult medical sciences, and with the same totality she is mastering her creative talent, challenging her mind and soul, committed and inspired, she is an artist.
During the painting my senses are troubled and the desire for freedom at these moments becomes the core of the creation which is directed with no predetermined direction. I approach the canvas with vigor and imagination that express my mood at the moment of creation, at times tempestuous and at times subtle. To me, every creation is an endless melody, a light, a movement of spirit and a storm of emotions conjuring up captivating colors. Thus, I do not limit myself to a particular style of painting or to a unique technique. I invite you to explore your subconscious in a fantastic journey into the world of dreams, suggestions, emotions, magical strengths, mystery and expressive power.
