In the midst of abstract pictorial elements, the viewer's gaze finds here and there fragmentarily hidden bodies and limbs, floating detached in front of monochrome backgrounds. It is above all the works of François Boucher that flare up in Andreana Dobreva's expressive works, both motivically and compositionally, only to evaporate seconds later into the outrageously dynamic brushstrokes. According to Dobreva, these recalled memories of pictorial memory are not quotes. Quotations create an intellectual distance between the work and its viewer that the artist does not intend to establish. Instead, her works of art merge and combine the old with the new. Surface and materiality, colour and body are now entirely in the service of a permanent movement, less in that of representation. Andreana Dobreva's paintings radically celebrate the theatrical as well as the present, the transience of the moment. Following the absolutist Baroque, Rococo regained the lightness of painting. The artist powerfully updates this lightness and lends her the luminous transience of a poppy - persephonium.
