Exhibition: Jasenka Korlević - Inner Journey

Solo Exhibition

We open the exhibition season at the Small Gallery with a solo exhibition of paintings by Jasenka Korlević titled Inner Journey. Korlević won this exhibition as a prize for the best-rated works selected by the jury at the 16th Profutura.

Korlević writes about her works: "Through a concrete, real, external motif, I come into contact with myself, expressing my inner world, the world of emotions, as I also professionally engage with the inner, emotional world of individuals. Emotions and their understanding, facing oneself, especially one's own vulnerabilities, are prerequisites for connecting with oneself, and then with others in a deeper, more complete, authentic way.

The motifs I often use in my artworks are nature, olive trees, quarries, salt pans, the sea, oxen, bulls, goats, birds... which I then artistically explore, express, and interpret depending on my emotional state."

Gallery opening hours:

Monday to Saturday: 10 AM - 12 PM and 7 PM - 9 PM
Sunday: 5 PM - 9 PM
Closed on holidays
