jörg dobrovich is a traveller between two cultures, the middle-european and the middle-americans (méxico) which he often visits. to enter the old mezoamerican mythologies is like an opening of levels of the unconciouness. his paintings are done in various levels, often hidden and over-painted, but always realizable under the surface.
but he is not only a traveller, sometimes he wants to arise from earth, on which he is almost rooted, to be near heaven, the gods and the angels. Those often appear in his pictures.
in his work you can see mystic landscapes, crowded by femal fragments, mythical animals, glyphs and other signs from the underworld (the unconciousness).
otherwise symbols of of fertility are appearing, some tropical is explosing itself.
his works are not copies of an outer reality, but images of personal mythologies and metaphores.
