Empyreal Souls No. 5 - Study No. 1
Painting - Acrylic On Plaster And Lime
From the Empyreal Souls Collection, Bogdanoff combines his neo-expressionistic and realistic approach with his fresco secco technique. Empyreal - pertaining to the heavens and that which is formed of fire and light - is how Bogdanoff describes his latest series of fine art. Bogdanoff considers his mystical faces in this series as guardian angels. As Bogdanoff's spiritual journey continues to evolve, so does his work as it pertains to his idea of a universe that moves in a good and orderly direction, and of the souls/angels that are a part of that universe. Haunting at first glance, the faces take the viewer into the depths of Bogdanoff's own life history of difficult obstacles. As the viewer's study of these faces continue, they begin to take on a magical quality. The viewer is taken to what Bogdanoff describes as his 'path of wellness.' This is where Bogdanoff wants you to arrive. Here is the core of where hope is found. The hope that comes from strength and enlightenment when one is able to work through past sufferings and ultimately finds peace and happiness.
These vivid human yet ethereal facial images are enhanced on the signature distressed plaster canvas through a melding of classic and modern styles.
