Marjan Gumilar, a lecturer at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design, Ljubljana, is a painter, sensitive colourist drawing on modernist abstraction of abstract expressionism.

“The new installation at the City Art Gallery, one in a series of exhibition venues marking the 90th anniversary of Drago Tršar, will help us “see and feel Tršar’s erotic sculptures.”

City Art Gallery of Ljubljana

“Much of the opus or creative production of the academic painter Drago Tršar’s has been devoted to erotic sculpture, demonstrating that the erotic aspect of his creativity or his inclination towards eroticism within art plays a crucial part in his opus. The exhibition will present us not only with his artworks in bronze, which is the basis of his sculpture, but also in ceramics.
