“The cosmic dark background of my paintings (for this purpose instead of canvas I began using black velvet with its marvellous depth) attempts to swallow all compositional elements of the painted images. It is this conflict that I seek to investigate. The images I paint remain linked to human nature, even if they are stripped of their enviromental setting. From the photo material which I use as a primary source for my paintings (they are mostly taken by me from my native surrounding) I mainly select the ones that essentially convey human condition in terms of habit, emotion and interaction. The photographic image describe a superficial and representational status. Only through painting these figures they reveal another quality: their symbolic nature as signs, resembling qualities of sadness, joy or nostalgia. The geometrical elements I use in my compositions anchor these symbolic figures in their spatial relationship. (to which they truly belong). Peeled from superficiality, they sing a song of their resistance through love and solidarity, being since immemorial time lost in a place whose true value or name nobody could ever recollect.“
(Thea Gvetadze, 2005)
