The soul of talented artist Zeiko Duka, Georgian born - London, United Kingdom based architect, artist, and fashion designer, cries out to her audience through her magnificent, musical compositions of lyrical color. Like the Surrealists or early Cubists, the artist uses color to communicate meaning. Her masterful manipulation of light and dark and the fluidity of forms seem like a pictorial portrayal of an opus by Stravinsky. She depicts her dreams and imagination in a symphony of blues and browns, purples and pastels that burst out of the canvas with the emotional force of the spring.
With all the drama of an early 20th century opera, Zeiko Duka reduces forms down to their basic core. She depicts semi-figurative human shapes in sensuous, flesh-toned circles of sienna and umber. Her imagery is as mysterious and ephemeral as a dream. She blends dimensional planes in dramatic, sweeping movements, avoiding mundane detail and giving the neoclassical works a surreal quality. As the plot unfolds, the veneer is stripped away and the fundamental, basic truth is revealed to the viewer in a crescendo of free – flowing abstract color.
