Tugo Šušnik: Quasimodo (1971-2017)
Tugo Šušnik, so it seems, could not have defined his forty-four years of artistic activity in the public eye in a more radical manner and with more self-irony than he did by means of the metaphorical title he selected for his overview exhibition, which is personified by the famous character of Quasimodo from the novel Notre-Dame de Paris by Victor Hugo.
In formulating his own painting processes he has – remaining faithful to the idea of freedom – time and again boldly entered the field of contemporary fine arts and gradually established his own original conceptual mechanisms for portraying the topic addressed.
