Maka Gotsiridze/ Abstract Art

“I - tomorrow!"

“Life is a gradual birth”- Exupery.

We pass through four stages, from childhood to old age and all of the stages are painful. The most difficult thing to do is to catch that second, that distinguishes you from the millions of other lives ...

Maka Gotsiridze was able to do that - she "caught" that second ...

She entered the world on April 25, 1966 ...

She couldn’t explain why she just felt, one day, the need to bring out the color, from deep inside her, but this is how it turned out, first at the Iakob Nikoladze Art School and then at the Tbilisi Art Academy ...

Then she started teaching others (and still does), how to "catch" their own, particular, seconds ...

She studied and worked in almost all of the renowned, schools and institutes in Tbilisi where there was a drawing or a painting course ...

This is how she was “born” into the daily adventure of life from color to color and from canvas to canvas ...

Then came 1989, 1995, and 1996 - the new stages of her "birth" -

“Life is ruled by wisdom and destiny” - Cicero ...

This fate brought the artist to Scotland and the Netherlands as well; she also felt the "taste" of selling pictures here ... the money she was sent to Georgia for her two young children had a completely different taste ...

Her "birth” of 1996 turned out to be special - a personal exhibition in Amsterdam ... collaboration with a private gallery in Limburg ...

She painted a lot ... she says, more for commercial necessity, but she was reborn and growing, in stature, on all canvasses ...

There were also 5 solo and numerous group exhibitions along the way.

But she still felt failure ... “I was worried about my failure to express the colors and emotions I had accumulated over the years” …..

Her thoughts, finally, began to take shape in 2019, which manifested itself in her 2021, solo exhibition - "Wall Records" ...

She talked through the wall ... It seemed as if all the stages, all the main seconds, all the pain appeared on the wall, which in 2022 turned into a new exhibition - "I - Today" ...

"I - tomorrow" will be, of course, then ... because life is a gradual birth and Maka Gotsiridze now knows it well ...
