EXHIBITION: PETAR KATAVIĆ – ARCHITECTURE

PETAR KATAVIĆ
ARCHITECTURE
Karas Gallery
March 9 – March 22, 2020

Exhibition Architecture, by Petar Katavić, will be opened on Monday, March 9 at 7 pm at the Karas Gallery (Zvonimirova 58).

“The exhibition presents the work of Petar Katavić, and here selected works are the continuation of the exhibition held at the Museum of Fine Arts in January this year. Since 2017 Petar has been developing and building on his ideas about shaping space with volume, which he also strives to show through his works. The reduction of colour, lines and surfaces, as well as simplicity in thinking about visual art, are the characteristics of the artist’s work, reflected both in the titles of his works and in the exhibition set-up. The exhibition held at the Museum of Fine Arts was titled Space, mostly because it was a site-specific exhibition creating bearing in mind the specific exhibition space within the gallery, and the title of this exhibition – Architecture – is a logical continuation that reveals the focus of the artist’s interests. (…)

(…) Although the aesthetics of Petar’s works is reduced, minimalistic and simple, each work reflects his dedication and devotion, which he sees as the most important factor in his work. In conclusion, I will again, just as in the preface to the Space exhibition, refer to Mies van der Rohe’s famous motto “less is more“, Petar’s guiding principle that very clearly illustrates the subtlety and meditativeness that I find in Petar’s works.”
