Letters from Paris. Painting by Konstantin Kacev. This gallery of nostalgic paintings is titled “Letters from Paris”. At first glance you would never tell these hyperrealistic paintings from collage work of photographs. Meanwhile, these beautiful photo realistic paintings remind us of good old times, and the lost era of hand-written letters culture. No wonder, simple envelopes look like vintage now. “What a lot we lost when we stopped writing letters. You can’t reread a phone call” – Liz Carpenter. Talented artist Konstantin Kacev was born in Tashkent, the Soviet Union, in 1967. After finishing school he, with his parents, moved to Skopje, Republic of Macedonia. In 1995 he graduated from Skopje Academy of Fine Arts, department of painting, conservation and restoration. Since 1999 he has participated in many exhibitions across Macedonia, Bulgaria, France, and the USA.
Letters are above all useful as a means of expressing the ideal self; and no other method of communication is quite so good for this purpose. In letters we can reform without practice, beg without humiliation, snip and shape embarrassing experiences to the measure of our own desires…Elizabeth Hardwick
I wonder if Eve could write letters in Paradise! But, poor Eve, she had no one to write to – no one to whom to tell what Eden was, no beloved child to whom her love traveled through any or all space. Poor Eve! Catharine M. Sedgwick
