Mako Lomadze is a contemporary artist from Georgia.
graduated from Tbilisi State Academy of Arts with a bachelor's and master's degree in fine arts. Regularly participates in local or international exhibitions and residencies. She currently works in her studio in Tbilisi.
Her works are housed in the Museum of Contemporary Art in Cosenza, and in private collections in Europe, Canada, and the United States.
She mainly works in traditional media. Oil paint is the material where she feels the most comfortable at this stage. The source of her work is firmly based on an internal dialogue, critical issues in the subconscious, dreams, and attitudes towards the world in general. Her works are permeated with symbolism.
The aim is to inspire interest in the research of a particular work in a seemingly aesthetically and simply conveyed visual language, which goes differently than the first impression. Her work is in line with her complex approach to issues.
Her works tend to be dreamy, illustrated with profound feelings, non-descriptive, and ambiguous. Somehow She tends to conduct the tragic sense of existence aesthetically.
In general, her works are divided into series, but most of them contain self-portraits.
The Portraits illustrate the stages of self-contemplation, and deep sensual issues and show the essence of the true self, embraced by loneliness.
Her art responds to the role of a woman in the modern world.
Her working methods are several: one involves researching the specific topic and creating the visual language formed on it, and the other is the reflexive action, rooted in the subconscious.
