ART OF DISASTER
Exhibition of fine art and lithography. Dealing with problems of human nature, mental and physical illnesses, love, hate, relations between people and everything else. In fact, the author is dealing with every problem of humanity and civilization at the same time. But primarily place author is creating images describing images from his personal life transformed into the metaphorical and symbolical form.
A series of printmaking graphics is made largely in lithography and in a lesser amount in other artistic graphic techniques.
The exhibition presents the author’s struggle with form and content. While the form of stone print likes to play various “tricks” that sometimes looks like a technological “Armageddon”, but still it’s always less important than content. The content of this exhibition, on the other hand, is the expression of emotional states of the author, but above all it is his notebook of the lifespan and observation of the world in which everything is too much. In this world, everything is in chaos and great confusion, and at the same time majestically and compulsively approaches the catastrophe.
The author analyses and explores the state of disaster in his work, which may never happen as well as the state of waiting for the end of the world to come.
