Slobodan Vidović: States

03. 07. 2020 – 06. 09. 2020

Slobodan Vidović (born 1974 in Gradiška, BiH) who is known for his large-format abstract paintings, this time entered a completely different field – the field of digital media, which, reinforced by the information revolution and digital precision transmissions, has been entering the field of painting for more than three decades. Vidović, as written by dr. Nikola Šuica, took contemporary models of visibility that are encouraged by the mixture of reality and lies presented by the media. The understanding of the panopticon of such an unstoppably dynamic world can hardly be recognised without irony. The painted motives emerge from the planetary span, which joins the melancholic feeling of exclusion with its sensibility. The series States brings a precise scope of realistic worlds that have been imagined and passed on through the language of painting structured scenes that are recognisable and perceived in the layering of media fixations. Through the static calmness of the precisely structured motif one can notice a distant trace of the photographic origins that have been transformed through a reduced colour scheme within a selected colour for each painting, at which the layering of paint originated in his earlier abstract series that approached non-abstract unbridled penetration into matter.

The exhibition was prepared in collaboration with Museum of Contemporary Art RS from Banja Luka.
