A little-known public fact about me: when I get the chance and time, I paint and make art (photography, paintings) for decades now. And my artwork “There are always flowers for those who want to see them”, (acrylic on canvas, 2021), is exhibited at the “A look into the Unexpected” exhibition in the Art Pavilion Cvijeta Zuzorić in Belgrade, until the 11th of March 2021. This is an hommage to Henri Matisse and for all of us a reminder this year. It is a great honor that my artwork is selected for this exhibition, produced by the Painting Section of ULUS (The Association of Fine Artists of Serbia) with its curatorial team of academic artists gathered around the Organizing Committee.
Below is the artist’s statement for this painting. * The painting is for sale, 10% of the sold painting goes to charity.
A Look at the Unexpected
Unexpectedly, our personal and social autonomy is distorted. We are unexpectedly displaced from our usual centers and habits. Unexpectedly, we were left without important and less important people in our lives. Unexpectedly, we realized that everything is important. Unexpectedly, we established new and reshaped old connections. Unexpectedly, we lost our jobs, found new engagements, got a new opportunity. Unexpectedly, we fell in love with new horizons and new people. Unexpectedly, we create a more stable present and a more promising future, a clearer, more supportive, less abstract one. Unexpectedly, in challenging times, it is good to return to yourself, nature, others. Someone who is soft and gentle.
Unexpectedly, flowers provide new views and insight into other dimensions.
Unexpectedly, you will bloom again.
