PAINTING AS AN IMPULSE
With Vladimir Vojvodic's paintings, the observer can see, feel and discover what painting really is. These paintings are expressions of calmness, but also of a spiritual adventure, craft, and show his passion and love for painting.
They are essential definitions of what painting can and should be. As a painter who can paint well, he can make an artistically challenging scene out of everything, just like the old masters: a painting with all its complicated elements and levels. It may seem to an untrained eye that some of his paintings are very skilfully analyzed photographs of landscapes, or paintings of nature by memory, but they are just pure artistic solutions brought to the abstract. Vojvodic explores the colour, light, space, composition, local tone, shade and cast shade, and details, in the scenes which bring the joys of painting closer to an observer.
Harsh, but fluid at the same time, this kind of painting brings up emotions and caresses the senses. The world of herbs, meadows, flowers, bushes, trees, forest clearings and paths, cherry orchards and shadowy skies, is full of flavours and sounds of nature, those distant and woven ones. His paintings are the simplest and the most universal, as much as the art of landscape painting allows. They are common places where atmosphere, densities and characters are hidden.
This painter believes that all exaggerations in art are signs of weakness. In that sense, Vojvodic finds a limit in creation, an ideal spiritual remoteness in painting, which is in accordance with the closeness with the nature. As well as chamber music or poetry, these paintings awake the personal and the deepest: memories, dreams, joys, and sadness… Can we ask for more from art? With Vladimir Vojvodic's works, we feel the truth of art – celebration and peaceful mind, quietness and abstractness.
