Christo Kasabov is an American-Bulgarian artist who currently lives and works in Toronto. Kasabov's work is a reflection of his artistic and philosophical pursuits that embody his views of the world. He is an abstract figurative expressionist intensely grounded in exploring relationships between the conscious and unconscious and one's inner versus external 'realities'. His ideas integrate the heritage of ancient civilizations, and more specifically, draw from reliefs, signs, symbols, engravings in earth, stone objects and walls. Through oil and acrylic, collages from wood, metal pieces and household objects, Kasabov enriches his abstract compositions until he's achieved a philosophical reincarnation, like a trip beyond the horizon. He strives toward an exceptional feeling of the material and non material across time and space. Onto acrylic layers, he engraves various signs and symbols, numbers and words, often implementing fragments of structure, the skeleton of a fish, a pyramid, a cross, a circle, an oval. It appears as primal language, a rationality that rises from disorder.
