We inform you that at the National Gallery of Macedonia, object Daut Pasha Hamam, on December 23rd, 2016 (Friday) at 7 p.m. the retrospective exhibition “Vangel Naumovski” will be open.
The exhibition presents a hundred works from all creative phases of Vangel Naumovski. The very name of Ohrid painter Vangel Naumovski brings several associations to our mind: in our country and in the world, he is always presented as a unique example of a painter of the marvelous world of the depths of the lake and the complexity of the universe, of satisfaction, of woman and love…
His poetic images with masterly stroke capture the world on the border between dream and reality, between the earth and the universe, the kingdoms of plants and flowers, the beauty of Ohrid nymphs. The magical worlds of dreams of Naumovski originate from his relationship to nature, environment, traditions, myths, while stylistically and thematically they occupy a separate and identifiable place with specific humanistic and pantheistic feeling of the world and of man in it.
It is not enough to say that the painting rendered by Vangel Naumovski is marked by a unique recognizability. Although a self-taught painter, he is among the very few artists from Macedonia, who also obtained the highest international acclaim especially during their most creative years. Offering authentic and distinctive artistic expression outside art trends, while always being relevant, sensitive and multi-facetedly creative, initially he was noted in the history of Macedonian (and further, of Yugoslav) art as the most prominent representative of the so-called “naive art”, determinations that were to be modified afterwards because of conclusions about his pursuit of fantastic surrealism.
The exhibition runs until 28 February 2017.
