Arlington, MA – “Monsters, ghost stories, horror movies and dreams have fascinated me since childhood and now serve as reference points,” said Boriana Kantcheva, whose “Likely Stories” exhibit has recently opened at 13FOREST Gallery in Arlington. The show features paintings that fuse people and animals and is inspired by fairy tales and folklore of Eastern Europe.
Despite the common theme throughout her collection, every painting is unique and especially eye-catching. The different uses of color and subject matter guarantees that the spectator will have plenty to look at. What is truly fascinating about her work is the amount of detail that goes into each piece; the more one looks at her paintings, the more detail is discovered, but the painting never becomes overwhelming.
