I WAS MOVED BY THE WINDS OF THE PAST
Karas Gallery
March 27 – April 7, 2019

 

Opening of the exhibition: Wednesday, March 27 at 7 pm at the Karas Gallery

Exhibition I Was Moved by the Winds of the Past, by Danilo Stojanović, will be opened on Wednesday, March 27 at 7 pm at the Karas Gallery (Zvonimirova 58).

“The paintings displayed at this exhibition are conceived as the cross-section of the past four years of my intense painting and experimenting. Of different formats and themes, canvases always have some aura of melancholy and romanticism, human figure is barely represented, whereas the landscape and blurry colour scheme, as well as a meticulous treatment of the painting surface come to the fore. (…)

The results are often crushing and frustrations that arise from this sometimes lead to a complete destruction of a work, but also to new discoveries. I always try to keep a bit of intuition and spontaneity, since the entire process depends on that. Although it might not seem such at first, nothing is ever planned in advance, but changes constantly. I draw inspiration from various sources, especially from early Gothic literature, science fiction of the ‘40s and ‘50s, archival photographs, scientific illustrations.”
