Marko Gavrilovic about his works:
CIRCLE OF LIFE, SHARK SCULPTURES
Sharks have been the main characters of my paintings and sculptures for a few years. I chose these particular species because they are the synonyms for power, freedom, movement and fear.
I found a lot of parallels between sharks and humans, which might be the main reason for the conflict between us.
Fascinated with a diversity of Nature from my early age, continuing to admire its powers through my art, I explore the possibilities in which Nature and built environment will coexist.
Installation Circle of Life gives some answers to the question why are we, from all the living beings, the ones that destroy and exploit nature to it’s limits.
Curators, Gloria Porcella and Aneta Ilic, bring the work of artists Marko Gavrilovic and Sandra Vucicevic, commissioned by Galleria Ca’ d’Oro into the epicenter of art and culture, at the EXPO Milano 2015 with “Big” special thanks to event organizer Gabriella Carlucci.
Sandra Vucicevic about her works:
In two mixed media paintings from this series: “Food Diary – Venus” and Food Diary – David,” I painted the bodies of the male and female nudes overlaid with food labels which I collected and cut out from food products my husband and I consumed in one month. In a way, these pieces represent our “food diary” for this period of time, hence the title. Beside using acrylic paint, food labels, and molding paste, I also worked crushed eggshells, dried plants, and grocery fishnet into the surface of the paintings to give them a third dimension and a sense of “the real”. more
