“Sometimes it seems as the screens show us a more ‘truthful’ reality than our own five senses in our daily life perceive. We see, hear and experience the worlds’ events through screens, we feel as we belong to the world through the power of these images. Our own existential experience is deeply influenced by this perception. On the other hand, the world on our screens seems somehow unreal – it resembles some kind of computer-generated reality...”

Nina Pancheva is an artist who works in painting and art installation. In her practice, she often juxtaposes abstract elements with figurative ones to explore various subjects, mostly related to political and ecological problems. Her recent work focuses on current ecological issues, such as the melting of the polar ice caps, issues which find their place in her paintings in the shift between the reality we feel with our senses and the digital one, marked by screens and computer dialogue boxes within figurative landscapes and portraits.
