For Art-o-rama 2023 Artbeat Tbilisi presents a solo show by Nato Sirbiladze, a self taught contemporary artist whose works often explore the intersection of memory, time, and identity. Her paintings often feature surreal and dreamlike imagery, with a focus on capturing the fleeting moments of memory and emotion. By bringing together past, present, and future within a single image, Sirbiladze’s works blur the boundaries of time and space, creating a sense of timelessness.
Additionally, the idea that the boundaries are blurred in Sirbiladze’s works may refer to the way she plays with traditional artistic techniques and styles, mixing elements of abstraction and representation to create a unique visual language.

The inclusion of the female figure in these paintings may reflect a particular aesthetic or cultural perspective, in which the female form is seen as a symbol of beauty and grace.
By incorporating these elements into the interiors of rooms, the paintings create a sense of connection between the indoor and outdoor worlds, inviting the viewer to contemplate the interconnectedness of all things Nato Sirbiladze’s art, in particular, is known for capturing moments in time and preserving them in visual form. Each of her images is like a time capsule, containing not only the visual details of a particular moment but also the emotional and contextual information that helps to make it meaningful. In this way, Nato Sirbiladze’s images can act as portals to different times and places in our lives, transporting us back to moments that are associated with particular codes and associations.
