Daniel Gentelev

Artist statement

My work derives from the transmission of a culture that represents the rhythm of human life. My work is inspired by mythological references connecting the symbolic, psychological and artistic heritage of humanity in contemporary life. I am interested in life through the aesthetic form of time and space and the main themes in my art are literary context and instantaneous reaction to both documentary and portraiture photography. I take the whole enrichment of the oriental understanding of transcendence and the māyā aspect of personality, how it’s all based on the mirror images of time and space, and my images are in an immediate relationship that is implicit in the occidental ideas moving into a global period of life.
