Marjan Gumilar. Paintings and Drawings

10. 9. 2009 - 5. 11. 2009 The current paintings of Gumilar, the cycle Macchie, reflect his new interest. The painter focused on the organism, the structural body processes, which cannot be seen with the naked eye. In such a context, it is not surprising that the artist's work is reminiscent of a microscopic view, [...]

Robert Černelč. Paintings (2009)

16. 7. 2009 - 20. 8. 2009 Černelč's images 2008-2009 are inspired by a camera shot. We rather interpret them as starting points of the view than ˝realistic˝ images. The structure of the view is inverted, the photographed canvas tells us a story. The movement of the hand, of the photographer, and the one from [...]

Vesna Drnovšek. Graphics

16. 7. 2009 - 20. 8. 2009 The graphics of Vesna Drnovšek represent an innocent moment and enable us to experience real happiness in the neurotic world, where we are treated as objects rather than subjects. It is not a coincidence that her prints remind us of images painted on the wall, since they metaphorically [...]

Anton Buzeti. Erotic Caricatures

11. 6. 2009 - 9. 7. 2009 Buzeti's erotic caricatures are rough and therefore remind us of Larry Flynt's hardcore pornographic newspaper Hustler. The main difference between them is that Buzeti didn't include any political statements but focused exclusively on eroticism. It is interesting that the artist didn't offend any social groups. Buzeti doesn't make [...]

Žarko Vrezec. Illustrations

7. 5. 2009 - 4. 6. 2009 Even today, where there are modern tools such as computer programmes, Žarko Vrezec stays true to the traditional art techniques and recognized ways of expressing himself. His naturalistic illustrations are connected with a long and rich tradition, which dates back to the Middle-ages and illuminated manuscripts, the Italian [...]

Janez Marenčič. Photographs

7. 5. 2009 - 4. 6. 2009 The formal deliberateness of Marenčič's images was never coincidental since the artist never reached for his camera unless he could imagine the final outcome of the image (the delivered message, the angles, colours etc.). Marenčič was convinced that the power of the photography lies in the ˝reduction of [...]
