About my work
My entire work is based on reflecting upon the fundamental issues of composition, colour, and light. My works are realised primarily through series of abstract painting, but I also draw upon other mediums and forms including sculpture, video, and installation.
Having been born in Croatia, I grew up in Belgrade, was educated in France, and live in Germany and these diverse experiences have had a profound effect on my development as an artist and my understanding of the inevitability of different constraints in the field of movement and expression and the need to face and remove, or at least relax these constraints. For that reason, my works convey their meaning in a language of pure art, they rely on dealing with creational issues and disregard the concepts of theme and subject. In my work I aim to create a special atmosphere, positive pulsation, serenity and harmony which all contribute to bringing together the rational and the perceptive, the concrete and the intimate in work, ultimately inviting the spectators to reassess the repetitive nature of their everyday lives.
