Abstract:

In the works of sculptor Boris Gondov the historical theme occupies an important place. He transforms vivid events and personalities of the story deeply and masterfully into a plastic direction. Our near and distant pasts excite the author and he creates memorable images such as those of Patriarch Evtimii, King Boris I, King Samuel, Kolyo Ficheto, Dimitar Blagoev and many others. Through them he discovers his attitude to a certain historical period and the personalities of history. Boris Gondov always looks for the original compositional and plastic solution and transforms his images in the light of their role and appreciation of their work in history.
