Art Critics' Choice – Series of Displays
In cooperation with the Slovenian Association of Art Critics
Critic: Brane Kovič
In a world drowning in myriads of garish images, the visual art of Klavdija Jeršinovec serves as a beacon for a new aesthetic experience of the viewer. The subdued palette and minimalist expression give a special prominence to a relief-like effect of the layered paint and rhythmic accents that create plasticity and evoke a space imbued with the fullness of black. Due to the deep fascination the painter and costume designer has developed for the predominant effect of this colour, Klavdija Jeršinovec only occasionally interrupts the overwhelming darkness by adding a well-considered colour accentuation and thereby leaving an imprint of colour on the black grid. An imprint substantial enough to interrupt the rhythm and alter the melody of the artwork, pointing out directions on the path of aesthetic experience provided by the gaze.
The colour-reduced works of visual artist and costume designer Klavdija Jeršinovec create a plastic, rhythmic space, well-considered in terms of semantic context yet rich in symbolism, which directs the viewers on their path to a new aesthetic experience. The fullness of black, a source of fascination to the artist, creates a sense of serenity, spaciousness and equilibrium as an antipode to the chaotic reality of our daily lives.
Seemingly extremely reduced in colour and brushstroke, the visual art of Klavdija Jeršinovec creates a unique aesthetic experience through the rhythmically punctuated structure of the picture plane and well-considered chromatic accents.
