Miniatures and collages by Jovana Mitic

Posted on : November 25, 2014 Author : Jovana_Mitic
“In most of my art I return to the archetype, the deepest part of the human soul. It is a weight directed towards reinvention of knowledge. Noman exists for himself... but each man is as old as the humanity - E. Hemingway. Part of history is always inside us... creation of first symbols, aspiring towards the archetypical, magical. It is descent into human’s soul, past, collective unconsciousness... to draw archetypical symbols on the canvas. What do I do as an artist? – I destroy form, deal in abstract art. Yet isolation from the outer world is not complete but there is always an association and connection with the outer world. This is less obvious in some paintings but in some connection with reality is obvious. Although I create a new world, it is, still, in a way, inspired by the existing one. Today we cannot renounce the world we leave in...”  Jovana Mitić version for website
