THE VISIT

Throughout Robert Dandarov’s paintings lingers a continuous, poetic processing of people’s darker yet delicate inner sphere by means of mythology, symbolism, playfulness, and art history. The heavy burden his paintings seem to bear is, with a sense of humour, passed on to the viewer who needs a chair to unpack the many layers Dandarov has hidden within the rhythm of his works. Similar to an ominous movie, his paintings carry an unbearable suspense, like a chronicle of a ghastly occurrence foretold, albeit with a whimsical undertone. Image upon image, this artist’s surfaces tell us stories without a timeline, bringing history and fairytales to our present day through his sophisticated understanding of metaphors and symbols.
