2021, "Morpheus" - stone sculpture

This original solid andesite sculpture is one of the latest artworks by the Bulgarian contemporary sculptor Ognyan Chitakov, deeply inspired by naturalism, brutalism and expressionism. It has authentic natural charm, mixed with the unique artistic signature and skills. Andesite is an extrusive igneous, volcanic rock, of intermediate composition, with aphanitic to porphyritic texture. The earth layers had fallen into the mantle, had melted and then pushed back on the surface, where they have cooled down quickly. This brutal process describes perfectly the andesite material. It is also brutally used by human as gravel for highways. The rocks are blasted, crushed and crumbled into small pieces. The artist's concept follows this brutal material characteristics and common attitude. This exquisite art object brings its beautiful artist's attention to high fashion detail, precision and top quality.

In ancient Greek mythology, Morpheus is the god of dreams and sleep – has the ability to take any human form and appear in dreams.

"The stone material is alive and has a soul. I never ignore it and its gravity as well. I try to give each artwork the feeling of lightness." ... by the artist
