The exhibition brings an insight into the 30-year painting oeuvre of Žarko Vrezec, a disciplined researcher of a refined painting language in the framework of the ideologically neutral modernist practices and one of the most active and distinct abstract artists that have been working since the late 1970s.
Although his works on paper of smaller and small formats in acrylic technique and with smaller pencil interventions were made simultaneously with his large canvases, he does not consider them to be sketches, outlines or proposals for the creation of the large canvases, but autonomous works, which, through numerous cycles and their derivatives, document the artist’s graphic thinking since 1990. The chronologically conceived survey will present around 500 works or smaller “organisms” as he calls them, which will be shown to the broader public for the first time.
