The graphics exhibition The Illusive Reality or the Fake Reality in Reflections
„Jelena Jovancev deals with the phenomenon of reality in her exhibition The Illusive Reality or the Fake Reality in Reflections perceives it through the lenses of perceptive illusion and its physical projection, reflection. Actually, seen as an apparition it represents the absoluteness of her creative thinking. The reminiscences of Jelena Jovancov`s ideal standpoint can be found in Plato`s thinking that the visual artistic image is actually a ``reflection of the reflection``… What is real and what is unreal in her works, and to what extent they influence each other, it is difficult to say, but by having us in doubt the artist has achieved her goal to make us think about our own face and its reflection, to face our shadow-`` by a distorted copy of reality without the true reality.`` The principle of dualism which is the basis of the microcosmic and cosmic wholeness represents the base for her personal and visual artistic aspirations. However, the form and its shade cannot be pre-supposed without light which in a certain waterlike, polished and glasslike surfaces make a different spectre of reflections…``
