Dražen Trogrlić An Intimate Universe 2000 – 2015 (Paintings, Sculptures, Drawings)
More than a hundred different kinds of work (paintings, sculptures and drawings), created in the period from 2000 to 2015, will be presented at the monographic exhibition of the versatile contemporary artist Dražen Trogrlić (1958), in the prestigious venue of the first floor of the Modern Gallery. The works that came into being in the last fifteen years constitute a synthesis of the artist’s parallel and unconstrained movements in differing media; they are characterised by innovative forms and contents, an inclination to primary, exceptional colour and a sensitivity for the psychological and spatial characteristics of colour and an ever greater reduction in both artistic terms and in the thought process. The artist’s dialogue with art is constantly freshly unfolding according to the life flow – the internal personal experience and feeling and its external rhythm. Dražen Trogrlić is eloquent in his expression in contemporary and always innovative visual form, in which the artist’s personal cosmogony can be felt, the psychological and emotional strata of the being, above all his serious absorption with the values of life and the radiant brightness of his view onto the world. The works exhibited have been carefully selected from the artist’s many series of paintings, drawings, watercolours, prints and sculptures.
The painting section has been selected by Academician Tonko Maroevic, and the sculpture by museum adviser of the Modern Gallery Đurđa Petravić.
Exhibition devised by Đurđa Petravić, museum adviser.
