Drawing Art Gallery CHAOS

The sense for a line and a drawing as the essence of artistic expression is something which connects those young artists regardless of the different techniques and quite different pictorial characteristics.  Stylish evocations vary from the abstract drawing (drawing on cubes by Katarina Stankovic), abstract expressionism (drawings on aluminum by Aleksandar Kostic), through the walk towards the abstract but without rejecting figurative (by Jelena Papovic) to the surreal world of objects and beings, machines and animals, insects and hybrids (by Natalija Mijatovic and Blazo Kovacevic) and finally to urban graffiti and interventions (by Jelena Tomasevic). At the base of this method there is a very precise drawing: ink, pen, brush, in oil, acrylic, aluminum, tracing-paper, paper- and that is, beside the creative power and courage what we are interested in. It is a common trait.

This exhibition has shown that they have all achieved a particular pictorial universe understanding art as a unique individual act. This exhibition presents a support to their brave exploration of the new fields in art and gives us a hope that there is no halt in weaving continual valuable threads not even during the most difficult times. In spite of the serious obstacles, these young people create studiously, persistently and spitefully. Therefore, they deserve our attention and trust more than ever. Anyway, we recommend them to some new museums, just imaginary for now, imaginary like our own existence.

"The common denominator of exhibited works are rhythm, repetition, movement, color (like a part of the inside construction) and value accentuation… is an attempt to define relations of drawing towards surface and space. By acting upon the surface (of paper or any other base), the surface is put in motion and extended by the “inside contents”. Expansion of drawing is attained by grouping of segments, changing their positions and installing them in space. Starting from different view points and from visual emotional experience, through some offered solutions, the basic issue becomes more actual – where does drawing start and where does it end."
