ARTIST STATEMENT

The exhibition Polynomial was created as part of postgraduate study in painting at the Zagreb Academy of Fine Arts, under the mentorship of Prof. Ante Rašić and Prof. Vera Turković. Polynomial is thus a part of a future doctoral thesis, divided according to the periods in which it was created. Chronologically, the development of the idea was shown in the following way:

1: Ten drawings (2016) 

I use drawings to explore and portray the states characterized by the presence of several contradictory emotions. Characters in interiors and exteriors reflect the internal turmoil.

2: Selection of photographs to be shown in large format (2017)

In this part I exhibited all the photographs I had used while preparing the exhibition. I put myself in the role of a detective and recorder of family events using photographs, without helpers and witnesses, and I created new documentation that will one day be seen as an isolated moment in the past.

3: Sketches and a visual diary (2017)

In the Polynomial drawing, the backbone of the entire exhibition, I create a juxtaposition of the four selected characters and deliberate upon the positions that belong to them within the frame. After defining the format I started working on two smaller format sketches in which the initial idea underwent certain changes. I simultaneously kept a visual diary to relieve from responsibility imposed on a work of art at an exhibition.

4: Polynomial drawing (2017) and analysis of the drawing (2018)

 Five characters are the protagonists of the story: four females and one animal in the background. The invisible action takes place in a non-existent space. Through an atelier exhibition and by providing an insight into my notes, I am saying goodbye to my years-long work.
