The things of life: Oda Jaune

23 August 2018 text Natalia Ivanova photo Elena Nenkova
When she is a child, her sister, also an artist, leaves in front of her a bouquet of red tulips to paint, and she copies on the sheet what she sees. Instead of praise, however, she gets a lesson: what was created by the nature is perfect, so there is no need to repeat it. "My next painting was blue tulips with pink handles," she tells us today to capture the direction in her painting: both astonishing, but also with plots close to detail and sensation to dreams.

If you haven't seen her pictures yet, it's perhaps because Oda Jaune (born as Mihaela Danovska) graduated from the Art Academy in Dusseldorf, she has lived in Paris since 2008 and has more than 40 exhibitions in Europe. In November we will see its first retrospective one in Bulgaria, but the moment to meet her is sooner - her bronze sculpture The Caress will appear in five unexpected places selected to be its natural decor. The first is the rocks of Varvara on 1 of September, where the sculpture will spend three weeks - near the sound of the waves, which is now the backdrop of our skype talk, which took us for an hour to Oda's house in Lozenets.
