Thea Gvetadze


Painting, 100 x 140 cm.
Materials: mixed media on black velvet

Collection: Collection M HKA, Antwerp / Collection Flemish Community (Inv. no. BK008183).

This series of works have been painted directly onto a black velvet ground. The works were inspired by her annual visits to Georgia whilst the artist was still living in Germany. Gvetadze took particular inspiration from her walks, seeing her encounters with different individuals – market traders, fishermen, gardeners and other inhabitants – as part of the theatre of the street. Enigmatic in tone and with a certain darkness, they reflect stories of private lives, gestures and body language.
