Predrag Popara

Serbia

Predrag Popara’s artworks proceed from an arbitrary movement which contains at once a hint of the artist’s self and a suggestion of matter in a state of swift and incandescent change.

Predrag Popara’s artworks proceed from an arbitrary movement which contains at once a hint of the artist’s self and a suggestion of matter in a state of swift and incandescent change. The images he creates display varying degrees of fracture and intensity, and eschew the liberating forms of Late Modernism. The vast, intensive canvas, that is the habitual realm of his painterly work, acts as a paradigm of the notion of post-truth that has struck at both global culture and solitary, individual ways of understanding the anxieties that surround us in the present day.

Predrag Popara’s fluency in the fragmentation of optical and colourful consistencies produces a re-emergence of hidden structures. It comprises traces of brush-stroke, and the drip and density of colour areas, as well as performative acts transmitting gestural lines and textural inventories.

The paintings in the series entitled The Burning Island represent an intense personal attempt to attune to and express an aesthetic and thematic disjuncture.
