... What is striking about the artist’s work at first glance is the returning of light as both a subject and medium. A major theme! From Genesis to Enlightenment, not to mention the nineteenth8 century electrification, light is associated with a treasury of cultural metaphors. Vassileva takes this to another level in her works. In doing so, she finds shapes that let us see light in completely new contexts.
