Lidija Delic at CIRCOLOQUADRO arte contemporanea

Lidija Delic at CIRCOLOQUADRO arte contemporanea
Lidija Delic, Soap Bubbles, 2016, oil on aluminium, 56x72 cm.

Lidija Delic presents her first solo exhibition in Italy entitled Sunset journeys, where she will be exhibiting her latest project; this consists of a new series of paintings that take inspiration and focus on the notion of sunsets as a symbolic representation of memory, time and travel. 

 

Working primarily in drawing and painting, Lidija Delić developed a body of work using various formats and techniques. Fascinated by the notions of time and memory, Lidija looks into dreamlike dimensions and elusive forms of existence. 

 

The apparent banality of the subject is emphasised through repetition and redundancy, while at the same time it is cancelled due to the nature of her painting technique that leads to outcomes that can never exactly be the same.

The artist creates works that appear somewhat suspended in time, as if they come from some undefined past. Her drawings are both carefully pondered and simultaneously spontaneous, hinting at transitory movements and moments, often evoking familiar interiors, spaces, scenes or landscapes without ever explicitly stating them. 

 

Drawing is for Lidija a way of looking, with non-discriminatory attentiveness, at things and dreamlike phenomena that don’t really come to stasis even in their finished state. The results are not just painterly moments – the drawings seem to embody, similar to film stills, a very cinematic way of looking at bodies or their details and gestures, situations and structures. Democratically discovered and noted scenes open up to the artist in their unexpected strength as the focal points of events, temporal and emotional flows.

 

The exhibition opens on Thursday, March 23, 6.30 p.m. and will run until May 12, 2017.
