ANTISTRESS MIX
Karas Gallery
October 2 – October 14, 2018

Opening of the exhibition: Tuesday, October 2 at 7pm at the Karas Gallery

Exhibition Antistress Mix, by Ivan Marković will be opened on Tuesday, October 2 at 7pm at the Karas Gallery (Zvonimirova 58).

“Antistress Mix, Ivan Marković’s sixth exhibition functions on two levels. Primarly, it is his personal hommage to 1950s american painting, which he cites as foremost influence on his work.

At the same time, the artist would call this exhibition as return to himself. Monocormatic surfaces, big dimensions and simultaneous absence of big ideas and even bigger pretensions are his both old and new aspirations which – depending of willingness to listen to oneself more then the demands of others – he eagerly and oftenly revisits. But this time at his bravest and one might say – most radical. This time the artist creats with lesser feeling of obligation than before, unburdened even with his own childhood (“No Name“, Golden Angel, Varazdin) – allowing himself to name the exhibition after essential oil that he “accidentaly” found in his atelier. He acquired this name, with no reservations towards banality and at the same time with no ironic distance, as appropriate for his work.

Playing with collage, which preceeded the creation of paintings, writes playfullness, simplicity and childlike freedom into this exhibition, which is something very much new for the artist and coming as a result of already mentioned coming to terms with personal childhood. That novelty could be puer aeternus of the author.”
