DOMAGOJ ROGINA
FROM THE SHADOW
Karas Gallery
October 15 – October 27, 2019

Opening of the exhibition: Tuesday, October 15 at 7 pm at the Karas Gallery

Exhibition From the Shadow, by Domagoj Rogina, will be opened on Tuesday, October 15 at 7 pm at the Karas Gallery (Zvonimirova 58).

“The From the Shadow Cycle of Domagoj Rogina is a cycle of still life in undefined, non-geographic spaces in which spreads of solid masses of teapots break through the layers, on sunny days, strands of toothed mountain peaks show one after another, and the cat’s soft-eared heads open their large jaws under the indifferent condemnation of shadowy lying kittens. The title (From the Shadow) stems spontaneously from the atmosphere of the cramped atelier in which the artist creates the attic and the sound of the occasional train, but also the elements of separation from the roaring world outside, in the face of separation from the safe situations of the artist on the Academy. For the idea of an artist as a hermetic who creates metaphorical gold in his alchemical laboratory of lead surrounding him is a wonderful story told by centuries-old annals of populist characterization of an artistic personality, but in reality, it is a constant conflict with the material demands of everyday life and himself. In this sense, Rogina’s paintings are filled with inner turmoil through the alternations of night and day, smooth and rugged, shiny and matte, cool and warm, light and shade. And precisely the heavy shadow, the element of material construction, becomes a place of conflict, becomes a being, as lively and important as other motives, in the rhythmic alternation of concentration – chaos – concentration – chaos, in the form of a dream (or nightmare) and a dark gap at the legs of the wrapped shape.”

From the preface, written by Marija Kamber
