Since her time at the Art Academy Düsseldorf her work has developed a highly idiosyncratic style for the visualization of thoughts, experimental distortion of reality,experimental impressions, philosophical writings and memories – a system which she is continually developing and expanding through the addition of new elements, styles and techniques. Malkhazova translates the objects and figurative forms under investigation into a her own sense of abstraction, which then finds expression, sometimes as mystically, dark unclear figures, sometimes as turbulently dashed specks of paint, transitions of geometrical forms. She makes no distinction between abstraction and figuration, between the regularities of sudden expression and the spontaneity of freehand drawing, but rather, she explores the two poles of these supposedly rigid opposites within one and the same painting, allowing things begun with precision and exactitude to shed all restraint in an unforeseen gestural fling. Her large format Paintings consist of complex models, that can be read as the personal depiction of a thought, conveyed via stages of re-forming, abstracting, translating and processing. They offer information on one’s own and other people’s perception of images.
