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-mandalas of 2016
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. Pogledajte detalje sa slike u nastavku posta.

Monument

Monument
acrylic on canvas, 50 x 60 cm, 2016

[en] After three-year break from creating paintings inspired by the music, I come back to this muse again. New painting that I present to you is inspired by the hypnotizing song of the Norwegian duo Röyksopp and Swedish singer Robyn. Both the music and lyrics were crucial, but in the transmission of feelings the video played a role too.
The painting explores the space that becomes actual after the death of a man – is it the physical position of the carcass in a “pit” or symbolic floating in the vastness of the universe? The painting tries to encourage the observer to ask questions that he will have to answer himself: What do I leave behind? In which space will this legacy reside? Just as a monument on my own grave? As a memory in the minds and hearts of those who knew and loved me? As a footnote in administrative records? Or as a complete memory in the collective consciousness of the universe?
See the painting in better resolution, details of the picture, lyrics, and music video below in the post.

[hr] Nakon tri godine pauziranja od stvaranja slika inspiriranih glazbom, ponovo sam se vratio ovoj muzi. Nova slika koju predstavljam inspirirana je hipnotizirajućom pjesmom norveškog dua Röyksopp i švedske pjevačice Robyn. I glazba i stihovi su bili ključni, ali i video je odigrao ulogu u prijenosu osjećaja.
Slika propituje prostor koji se aktualizira nakon čovjekove smrti – je li to fizički položaj trupla u “jami” ili simboličko plutanje u prostranstvima svemira!? Slika nastoji potaknuti promatrača da postavi pitanja na koja će si morati sam odgovoriti: Što ostavljam iza sebe? U kojem će prostoru ta ostavština obitavati? Samo kao spomenik na vlastitom grobu? Kao sjećanje u prostorima uma i srca onih koji su me poznavali i voljeli? Kao fusnota u administrativnim zapisima? Ili kao cjelovito sjećanje utkano u kolektivnu svijest univerzuma?

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

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.

[hr] Ovo je galerija s odabirom mojih slika inspiriranih drvećem i šumom. 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 (više o mitologiji drveća). Uz stablo se na mojim slikama iz ove serije često pojavljuju i drugi praiskonski mistični simboli (spirale, krugovi, kvadrati, sunce, zvijezde, itd.).
