About Irena Desovska Belcovski
Born: 1979, Skopje Macedonia. Lives and works in Burlington ON, Canada. `Other than verbally, I use art to express myself and all that I am. The inspiration of every painting I do comes from what is around me, which I believe is nothing than a pure energy, usually shown to me like feeling, image or thought. This energy initiates a process of creation that ends with a new piece of art. The composition and colors in my paintings are the feelings that I have in me. Which way they will take me I never know. At the end my goal is to through passionate work, make art that is the source of joy and excitement to the observer.` "Traveller" I started this series at the beginning of 2012, just after my arrival in Canada. The series is dedicated to my last travels through Macedonia, North Africa and Canada. Although those places offered different faces of landscapes, cultures, traditions and experiences, they spoke to me in the same words and were shown to me with the same colours. This is the evidence that sometimes in the differences we can find the same beauty. "Haiku" This series of paintings is named after Japanese poetic form. Haiku is often represented by the juxtaposition of two images or ideas. The themes include directly-observed nature, feelings, or experiences. Haiku uses an economy of words to paint a multi-tiered picture, without "telling all". I have tried to put a mental image in the viewer’s mind thought a combination of few colors and simple knife strokes.
