About

The hand that holds the pencil in Boryana’s works does not just lay lines on the white surface, it explores territories, creates paths, makes sense of surfaces, leaves traces of work in confined spaces, traces describing emotional states, traces of immediate reactions to the physical environment, of the effort to overcome borders.
