Moon above the Tree / Mjesec nad Stablom

Moon above the Tree
Mjesec nad Stablom
mixed media (acrylic paint, black crystal and 21 metal ring) on canvas, 70 x 50 cm, 2018
$670

[en] In this painting someone will see only a red tree with green hills in the distance. They’ll see the Moon only if someone points to it. The painting’s name does it. And they’ll stop there. They will not reflect on the meaning of the image. It will be just a question of whether they like it or not.

But “Moon above the Tree” is actually a psychopicture. As there is psychodrama, there is a psychopicture – an image that depicts some unconscious content. The concrete elements of the composition were spontaneously appeared during the painting itself. By analyzing the finished painting, I realized how much the presented elements are important to me.

[hr] Netko će na ovoj slici vidjeti tek crveno stablo sa zelenim brežuljcima u daljini. Mjesec će ugledati samo ako im se skrene pažnja na njega. Naziv slike to čini. I tu će stati. Neće ulaziti u dubioze oko značenja slike. Bit će to samo pitanje da li im se slika sviđa ili ne.

No, “Mjesec iznad Stabla” je zapravo psihoslika. Kao što postoji psihodrama, ovo je psihoslika – slika koja ocrtava neki nesvjesni sadržaj. Konkretni elementi kompozicije su se pojavljivali spontano tijekom samog slikanja. Analizirajući završenu sliku shvatio sam koliko su svi prikazani elementi važni za mene.

A Man of Double Deed

A Man of Double Deed
mixed media (acrylic paint, acrylic felt pen, wooden slats, wooden sticks, fabric, cardboard, nail) on canvas, 60 x 60 cm, 2018
$670

[en] Do you know the TV series “The Fall” starring Gillian Anderson and Jamie Dornan!? Well, that series and poem read in the very last episode of the drama had haunted me for over a year. Since Croatian Society of Visual Artist Zagreb is hosting the exhibition “Through Image and Word” in March 2018, it has prompted me to show in my way a British folk poem entitled “There was a man of double deed”. Read it, listen to it, and view all the painting details, because this time it was very difficult to catch it in just a few photo frames.

[hr] Znate li za TV seriju “The Fall” s Gillian Anderson i Jamiem Dornanom u glavnim ulogama!? Pa eto, ta serija i poema koja je čitana u zadnjoj epizodi serijala su me proganjali preko godine dana. Budući da HDLU Zagreb u ožujku 2018. sprema izložbu “Kroz sliku i riječ”, potaklo me to da uprizorim na svoj način britansku narodnu pjesmu naziva “There was a man of double deed” / “Bijaše to čovjek dvostrukih djela”. Pročitajte je, poslušajte je i pregledajte sve detalje slike, jer ovaj put mi je bilo baš teško uhvatiti sve to u samo nekoliko kadrova.

Maja’s Tree / Majino stablo

Maja’s Tree
Majino stablo
digital art, 2018

[en] I made this digital art for my dear friend for a birthday. Trees and forests heal and transform unpleasant and burdensome feelings into something productive and useful: trees flourish and bloom, and we feel relieved. Inscription on this art is in the old Croatian Glagolitic alphabet and it means “fear”. Fear is buried in our subconscious, and in the picture it is shown as in the ground. Roots absorb the fear as a food and transform it into something positive, and the whole process is illuminated by the Sun’s light. The tree is leafing out!

[hr] Ovu digitalnu sliku sam napravio dragoj prijateljici za rođendan. Drveće i šuma iscjeljuju i transformiraju neugodne i opterećujuće osjećaje u nešto produktivno i korisno: drveće napreduje i cvjeta, a mi se osjećamo rasterećeni. Napis na ovoj slici je na starom hrvatskom pismu glagoljici i znači “strah”. Strah se nalazi zakopan u našoj podsvijesti, a na slici je to predočeno tako što je u zemlji. Korijenje upija strah kao hranu i transformira u nešto pozitivno, a cijeli proces obasjava svjetlost Sunca. Stablo je prolistalo!

Orman Tree No. 16 / Orman stablo br. 16

Orman Tree No. 16
Orman stablo br. 16
acrylic on canvas board, 15 x 10 cm, 2017
$140

[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.).
