Materialized transformations, acrylic on canvas, 130 x 100 cm


Lucija Stramec’s painting reveals lengthy, scrupulous work in the field of image. Her creative gaze is directed towards nature, in which she discovers details. She creates sensibly experienced, magnificent visual manifestations out of this macro world. Compressing linear traces and layering she produces the effect of a formally veristic image and establishes a picturesque play between light and shadow and the liveliness of the painted, for even the optical effect of flickering can be discerned. Maple leaves are different and simultaneously self-same, hence, it is even possible to talk about the fractal interdependence of the detail and the whole. Lucija Stramec’s painting is a process: thoughtful, precise, refined and committed. ”
