The Green Dress
2001-recent
I bought the green dress but never wore it, yet I took it in my suitcase everywhere I went. I needed a reason to put it on, but it never came and I was coming to accept its silent company…
It started with an oil painting, a piano and three of us in an apartment in the center of Sofia… a long time ago…I posed for a portrait, wearing my green dress for the very first time and listened to him on the grand piano in the middle of the living room.. .In a lifetime, we meet people who mark us. They become our friends, lovers, enemies and sometimes remain… as strangers who have touched us in a way, we remember them always.I know that day I wanted to remember forever. I parted with the green dress because it became the embodiment of feelings past and feelings to come – a sentiment that stays, despite the traces time leaves.I believe the green dress came to be a message, words unsaid and incomprehensible, a note beyond time and space - I would write as I went through the days… as they came.
