Orman stablo br. 16
acrylic on canvas board, 15 x 10 cm, 2017

[en] Orman Trees are painting miniatures depicting the mystical trees. These paintings represent my emotional impressions of trees and their energy; for this reason the depiction of trees is abstracted, expressive and surreal. Trees symbolize strength and the renewal of life, growth, the rise and expansion, beauty and wisdom. Rooted in the ground and aimed at the sky, trees have always aroused admiration by the people, teaching them about the unbreakable connection between earthly and heavenly world, between material and spiritual, and between temporary and eternal. The Sacred Tree, the Tree of Life and the World Tree are the ancient symbols of many people. Along the tree, other primal mystical symbols (spirals, circles, squares, sun, stars, etc.) often appear in my paintings of this series.

[hr] Orman stabla su slikarske minijature koje prikazuju mistična stabla. Ove slike predstavljaju moje osjećajne impresije stabala i njihove energije; iz tog su razloga prikazi stabala apstrahirani, ekspresivni i nadrealni. Stabla simboliziraju snagu i obnavljanje života, rast, uzdizanje i širenje, ljepotu i mudrost. Ukorijenjena u zemlju i usmjerena u nebo, stabla su oduvijek u ljudima pobuđivala divljenje, podučavajući ih o neraskidivoj povezanosti zemaljskog i nebeskog, materijalnog i duhovnog, prolaznog i vječnog. Sveto drvo, Drvo života i Drvo svijeta drevni su simboli mnogih naroda. Uz stablo se na mojim slikama iz ove serije često pojavljuju i drugi praiskonski mistični simboli (spirale, krugovi, kvadrati, sunce, zvijezde, itd.).

Rise
acrylic on canvas, 38 x 46 cm, 2016

[en] New painting I present to you is inspired by a love song of Irish band The Frames. Music is visually depicted in abstract and expressive way with colors and lines that arise from rapid and not quite consciously guided movements (gestural paintings), triggered by emotions that music creates in me while its sounds fill my studio during creation. View painting and its details in better resolution, and listen to music video with the lyrics below in the post.

[hr] Nova slika koju predstavljam inspirirana je jednom ljubavnom pjesmom irskog benda The Frames. Muzika je vizualno prikazana na apstraktan i ekspresivan način pomoću boja i linija koje nastaju brzim i ne baš potpuno svjesno vođenim pokretima (gesturalno slikarstvo), potaknutima osjećajima koje glazba pobuđuje u meni dok svojim zvukovima ispunjava moj atelje za vrijeme stvaranja. Pogledajte sliku u boljoj rezoluciji i detalje sa slike te poslušajte glazbeni video uz stihove pjesme u nastavku posta.

Mini-mandale iz 2016.

[en] I have been creating miniature mandalas for three years. They are made on the canvas cardboards measuring 10×10 cm. Mini-mandalas are considered as talismans by their owners because of the multiple layers of primordial symbols’ meaning that occur on them (spirals, circles, squares, rays of the sun, stars, numbers, as well as Arabic and Glagolitic script, etc.). During 2016 I made 27 mini-mandalas, so I invite you to view them in this online gallery.

[hr] Već tri godine stvaram minijaturne mandale. Radim ih na slikarskim pločicama dimenzija 10×10 cm. Njihovi vlasnici ih drže za talismane zbog višeslojnosti značenja praiskonskih simbola koji se javljaju na njima (spirale, krugovi, kvadrati, zrake sunca, zvijezde, brojevi, ali i arapsko i glagoljičko pismo, itd.). Tijekom 2016. godine napravio sam 27 mini-mandala te vas pozivam da ih razgledate u ovoj online galeriji.

Orman stablo br. 13

[en] Orman trees are painting miniatures depicting the so-called mystical trees that are spiritually linked with the families for whom I create them. The connection is made through used colors and symbols that come to me during the creative zeal, keeping in focus client’s needs or desires. This orman tree, in addition to fact it is the thirteenth in a row, indeed carries the symbolism of the number 13 (as well as the symbolism of the number 4), which is important for the family who wishes it. See details of the painting below in the post.

[hr] Orman stabla su slikarske minijature koje prikazuju tzv. mistična stabla koja su duhovno povezana s obiteljima za koje ih stvaram. Veza se ostvaruje putem upotrijebljenih boja i simbola koji mi dolaze tijekom kreativnog zanosa, imajući u fokusu naručiteljeve potrebe ili želje. Ovo orman stablo, osim što je trinaesto po redu stvaranja, doista nosi simboliku broja 13 (kao i simboliku broja 4), a koja je važna za obitelj koja ga je poželjela.

Mandala of catharsis (purification)
Mandala katarze (pročišćenja)

[en] That’s my latest mandala! Finally materialized after a really long inner maturation. Out of the swirling of everything in me (and around me), from the chaos of the destruction of the old (and therefore it looks like what it looks like), was born something new, something was liberated… I named it the “Mandala of catharsis (purification)”. The symbolism is multilayered and I have yet to fully decipher it, but there are some hints below in the post.

[hr] Eto moje najnovije mandale! Konačno se je materijalizirala nakon doista dugog unutrašnjeg sazrijevanja. Iz vrtloženja svega i svačega u meni (i oko mene), iz tog kaosa uništavanja starog (zato i izgleda ovako kako izgleda), rođeno je nešto novo, oslobođeno je… Nazvao sam je “Mandala katarze (pročišćenja)”. Simbolika je višeslojna i tek je i sâm trebam u potpunosti odgonetnuti, no evo nekih naputaka u nastavku posta.

The promise of abundance
Obećanje obilja

[en] This is the second of my two “orman tree” paintings inspired by Reiki and Japan. It is associated with Japanese symbolism of spring cherry blooming – with awakening of spring (literally and symbolically), with the transience and importance of enjoying in every moment of life, but above all with the promise of fruits that are still invisible in the bloom, but we have confidence that they will come.

[hr] Ovo je druga od moje dvije slike “orman stabala” inspiriranih Reikijem i Japanom. Povezana je s japanskom simbolikom proljetnog cvjetanja trešnje – buđenjem proljeća (doslovno i simbolički) te prolaznosti i važnosti uživanja u svakom trenutku života, ali prije svega obećanjem plodova koji su još nevidljivi u samom cvatu, ali možemo imati povjerenja da će doći.

Mandala of silence / Mandala tišine

Mandala of silence
Mandala tišine

[en] Mandala of silence evokes values that Zen praises the most: the silence and the presence. On mandala there are written my three poems in old Croatian Glagolitic script: “Sinking into silence”, “Voiceless presence” and “Silence”. It is interesting that Mandala of silence is actually full of words…
View details of this mandala from different angles in the gallery bellow.

[hr] Mandala tišine priziva vrijednosti koje zen najviše veliča: tišinu i prisutnost. Na njoj su glagoljičnim pismom napisane moje pjesme “Potonuće u tišinu”, “Nijema prisutnost” i “Tišina”, sve tri iz zbirke poezije “Putovanje”. Zanimljivost je da je Mandala tišine zapravo puna riječi…

Trees of change
Drveće promjene

[en] These two paintings represent my artistic dealing with unpleasant and burdensome feelings – fear and worry. Trees and forests heal and transform such feelings into something productive and useful: trees flourish and bloom, and we feel relieved. Inscriptions on the paintings are in the old Croatian Glagolitic alphabet and they mean “fear” and “worry”. See more details of these paintings in the gallery below..

[hr] Ove dvije slike predstavljaju moje umjetničko nošenje s neugodnim i opterećujućim osjećajima – strahom i brigom. Drveće i šuma iscjeljuju i transformiraju takve osjećaje u nešto produktivno i korisno: drveće napreduje i cvjeta, a mi se osjećamo rasterećeni. Napisi na slikama su na starom hrvatskom pismu glagoljici i znače “strah” i “briga”. Vidi više detalja s ovih slika u galeriji u nastavku.

Mini-mandale iz 2014.

[en] This year I started to create miniature mandalas, along with big mandalas. They are made on the canvas cardboards measuring 10×10 cm. Mini-mandalas are considered as talismans by their owners because of the multiple layers of primordial symbols’ meaning that occur on them (spirals, circles, squares, rays of the sun, stars, numbers, as well as Arabic and Glagolitic script, etc.). During 2014 I made a 100 mini-mandalas, so I invite you to view some of them in this online gallery.

[hr] Ove godine sam uz velike mandale počeo stvarati i minijaturne. Radim ih na slikarskim pločicama dimenzija 10×10 cm.

Furrowed onecoloredness / Izbrazdana jednobojnost

Furrowed onecoloredness
Izbrazdana jednobojnost

[en] Five paintings from this miniseries emphasize expressive power of line and relief made by short and energetic creative burst in just one color.
They were part of my graduate thesis (link to it).
Photography can be very awkward to show real impression of these paintings because of the relief, which the camera captures with the difficulty, especially when it comes to monochromy. However, look at all the paintings and images of some details below …

[hr] Pet velikih slika iz ove miniserije naglašavaju izražajnu moć linije i reljefa nastalih u jednom kratkom i energičnom kreativnom izboju u radovima sa samo jednom bojom.
One su bile dio mog diplomskog rada (link na rad).
Fotografija vrlo teško može prenijeti pravi dojam ovih slika upravo zbog reljefa kojeg fotoaparat teško bilježi, pogotovo kad se radi o monokromiji. Ipak, pogledajte sve slike i prikaze nekih detalja u nastavku…

Uruq mandala

Uruq mandala

[en] This mandala is atypical in comparison to other I have created. It lacks the center and the radial spreading of the texture, and the motive of the square network is tilted. A special feature of this mandala is that it can be hung on the wall in four ways. “Uruq” is an arbitrary name that came to me spontaneously … maybe because of the association with the meandering river, the Tigris, the Sumerian civilization and the ancient city of Uruk!?

[hr] Ova mandala je netipična u odnosu na ostale koje stvaram. Nedostaje joj središte i radijalno širenje teksture, a i motiv kvadratične mreže je nakošen. Posebnost mandale je i u tome što se može objesiti na zid na četiri načina. “Uruq” je proizvoljan naziv koji mi je spontano došao… možda zbog asocijacija na meandrirajuću rijeku, Tigris, sumersku civilizaciju i drevni grad Uruk!?
