Konstantin Kacev Painting

Figurative paintings by Konstantin Kacev

Konstantin Kacev, born in the former USSR, is a painter who is currently living and working in Skopje in the Republic of Macedonia. He paints realistic figurative scenes that contemporary life with a surreal twist.

For many years he had worked at the Republic’s Department of Culture and Conservation specializing in protection of monuments as a freelance wall painting conservator. Since 1999 he has moved in his studio and participates in many exhibitions across Macedonia and several independent exhibitions in Paris and New York in 2005.

In terms of style, Kachev adopts a formal, classical painterly approach that is inspired by the paintings of the Old Masters, yet his subject matter explores contemporary preoccupations and imagery. His canvases combine depictions of the human form painted in a hyperrealistic style with backgrounds that are left deliberately unfinished so as to highlight the physicality of the painting process.

Beauty | Reflection of the Divine

What is beauty? Why does beauty attract us so much? Neoplatonism is based upon an axiomatic presupposition that the world that we experience through our senses is not the real world. Behind it lies something that is more real than it is, which in turn, is based upon something that is still even more real than it, so that the Most Real is quite removed from what we ordinarily experience. It is a theme found in ancient Greek philosophy and in numerous Hindu writers throughout the centuries. It is a theme of great historical importance in the intellectual history of the West, and India, and one that is not inconsistent with, and is even relatively amenable to, the major ideologies of the Greeks, Indians, Hebrews, Romans, Christians and Muslims.One distinctive feature of the Neoplatonic interpretation of this theme is a mapping or ranking of reality into a series of levels of reality so that anything at any given lower level is only relatively real. It can be concretely real as an individual thing while also being real as a lower level of something of a higher level.
