Alena Klatikova

In Search of Identity

22. January - 3. February 2017.

On Monday, January 22nd at 7 pm is opened the Exhibition of prints, by Alena Klatikova, artist from Novi Sad.

Prints of this young artist are unified in their subject matter and form of visual expression, they represent the numerous variations of one motif – portrait. Alena avoids pictorial rules of mimesis, and uses an unconvential approach in modeling portraits with emphasized and expressive gestures. All prints are made in technique of lithography which allows spontaneity in creative process. Only contours can be recognized in these portraits titled with personal names.

What dominates these prints is their artistic quality apparent in compositions built mostly of densed linear structures of various intensity, dynamics and colored arrangement. These formal elements reveal the typology of human’s character and open the philosophical, psychological, visual and Alena’s personal questions, as well, which concern the problems of identity.

Alena Klaćik (1991. Novi Sad) graduated (2014) and postgraduated (2016) from Academy of Art in Novi Sad, Department of Printmaking. She had three solo exhibitions and participated in many collective exhibitions in Serbia and abroad.
