Hristo Smirnenski blok.70 entrance A fl.9 ap.23 , Sofia, 1000

This work is part of a series that takes the rules of composition found in the style of the nature morte and uses them as a method for evoking emotion and narrative. By using computer-generated imagery I have generated a hyper-realistic depiction of a post-communist scene located in Sofia, Bulgaria.

In this still life, I have specifically focused on communicating a feeling of disgust. My intention is to make the viewer feel disgusted by observing the unusual interactions that occur between the objects in the composition. In order to achieve this feeling of abjection, I have experimented with manipulating the object’s physical attributes out of the ordinary realm of understanding.

Hristo Smirnenski, block 70, entrance A, fl.9, ap.23, Sofia was part of Bloomberg New Contemporaries 2018 and featured in a few articles, including Time Out.
