ARTIST DETAILS

JELENA VITOROVIC

Serbia

“I refer to my art as Contemplation Landscapes. These are landscapes that live inside us and that are the remembrance of actual nature in a full form. Animals that appear in it are a presentation of human feelings. My painting process begins with random splashes of paint, that is the gateway through which what is inside can come outside and present itself line by line. People usually ask me how can I be so patient and make so many lines. Some are even convinced that I must be crazy. Well, lines for the visual artist are like words for the poet or writer, so for me, it is as easy to create so many lines as for a writer to write pages and pages of words. Sometimes lines just flow and sometimes a stroke seems to do justice to nature’s forces. So I construct and reconstruct. Each line gives a hint for the next one. The line is my way to connect with nature and people in a basic way.”

ARTWORKS

"Vuples Vuples" N°0068

Landscape and fox are achieved with wavy-parallel lines drawn over action painted abstraction. These lines are building blocks of surface; by putting one on top of the other the surface is activated. Each surface plays its role in shaping the landscape and the animal. Red fox is drawn with the white lines, as opposite to the background which is in dark greys, grey-blue and in grey-pink colours

"Moebius mind" N°0065

The painting depicts semi-abstract landscape; bedrock, in the first plan, and the mountains in background are still recognizable. Landscape is achieved with wavy-parallel lines drawn over action painted abstraction. These lines are building blocks.
This is reduction of the art elements that are needed for visual art. Paintings are consisting of low and rules, in order to depict object. Every artist has his own set of rules, when creates; even when there are no rules and margins - than that becomes rule. This is the same in life, every person has his or hers own moral and ethic standards, and we all have to coexist.
