The Graphics and Paintings Exhibition
"As her basic motif Marija Sibinovic has a city in a series of graphics. In the modern architectural environment the purified form is applied as an aesthetic element in our everyday life. Each single caption, each single work can be recognized as a part of a general impression, but at the same time each single piece has its own inner association and a special departure point. The elements of play which changed based on the light are interesting, as well as the refraction angle, in certain moments in the natural outer surroundings. The cut outs are free integral elements from paintings which are structured according to a new immanent principle. This kind of cutting out the composition, the type of collage structuring is also differentiated according to the colour. It has a decisive role in making up a certain impression and presence. The geometric elements, straight lines, general forms-thus can at first sight the artististic composition be presented, but deep behind the inner rhythm of colour is hidden as well as the personal transformation of some cadres, tense decomposition of lines, connected into one inner structure. The motif of the city is indifferently present; the architectural elements turn the composition into pure and abstract forms. Each single work, as a part of a whole, contains its own charge, and the observer goes through a series of associations for thought, feelings and circumstances` initiation."
