Artist Statement of Olivera Kovačević

Splashes of colour, atmospheric images, gloomy shades, opaque layers are some of the most common traits of my artwork. I like to work on impulse, from gut feeling, from a strong emotion that triggers my imagination, from a spark of the split of a second.

 

Then, somehow, I freeze that feeling and start to "sculpt in the air"™. Sculpting-in-the-air is my coin that, in my humble opinion, best describes a process of how I visualize some figurative space from thin air, driven by my imagination.
