Kina Bagovska says of her work:
"I listen and paint music. I try to interpret music making use
of rhythms in my strokes."
Music is in the focus and essence of Kina Bagovska's art
through its rhythmic expression of light.
Her recent paintings search for translucency, reflection, and
refraction through use of papers and clear
foils. She looks to the reflections surrounding us to create a
different world that is unreal, dynamic and
changing. Backdrops of neutral paint tones serve as windows
through which the layers are revealed. Juxtaposed layers create
movement and depth in space.
Bagovska received a Master of Arts degree from the Academy of
Arts in Poland.
She has lived in Chicago since 2000, working as a journalist
for the Bulgarian newspaper, Bulgaria21
Century, and teaching art classes at Triton College, and at her
private art studio.
KINA BAGOVSKA also has a
show at ARC Gallery, 4/1 - 4/23/2011
ARC GALLERY Opening Reception is Friday,
April 1, 6-9PM
Kina Bagovska's new exhibition: "Earth and Fire," seeks
to explore and understand the relationship of the female figure
to those created in ancient Bulgarian civilization. Ancient
peoples have long made statuettes as metaphoric references to
creation. Earth is an expression of the female spirit and Fire
refers to male power. Both are part of the nature of humankind.
She draws and paints diverse body shapes which allude to the
shape of excavated figurines but exceed their original size.
Bagovska continually searches for translucency using graphic
lines from the first layer as reflections of light in order to
reveal movement and depth in space.

the oldest co-ops of its kind in the country.
Being a non-profit, woman artist-run cooperative, ARC continues
its feminist tradition by providing exhibition opportunities
for professional and emerging artists working in all media
based on excellence of artwork, without discrimination toward

spiritual or political orientation.
Kina Bagovska has been a member of
ARC gallery since 2002, and has received awards of Illinois ART
Council, in 2003 and in 2008 for her art.
