Lia Chechelashvili Paintings
”Lia Chechelashvili uses lines to describe relationships. Her painting The Cube depicts two figures: one female figure made of weightless line that freely moves about as it describes the female form and one male figure that exists more statically in the lower region of The Cube. The play between Chechelashvili's figures and her clever use of line is telling. With just enough information she describes a universal relationship within a closed system - a familiar allegory of male and female archetypes. With well-considered line she defines a still introverted male, facing away from the viewer and the curvilinear levitating female. Chechelashvili's work examines human narrative within reductive form. Her background in quantitative thinking is a visible component in her efficiently designed figures and volumes. Chechelashvili's figures exist between physiological and psychological representation. With linear transformations she skews the viewer's perceptions and entices a rewarding visual journey.”

Artist's Statement:
I get an immense pleasure while creating figurative compositions with white lines on dark background. Human figures, their interaction, linear transformations of the objects, rhythmic harmony of construction and on the other hand strong emotional charge, these are the main features of my work. Linear style has become dominating in my activity since 1989, although during all this time I have also been creating color figurative compositions with substantive philosophical and psychological content. I got the opportunity of international exposure only since 2003. I had several exhibitions in Spain, USA, Italy, France and Austria.
