In the Space for Art the exhibition of Ljiljana Kolundzic paintings was opened

Within the Space for art in Podgoricka banka, exhibition named “Melancholy” of academic painter Ljiljana Kolundzic was opened. The artist presented ten works in combined technique, created in the period from 2015 to 2017, as well as the latest works from 2019. 

Mirjana Bajic, an art historian and theorist has written about these works: 
„ Her characters, mostly female, are neither cheerful nor terrifyingly sad or otherwise frightened ... with eyes that barely miss as a line, a point, almost nothing but still existing on the face tissue, vibrant... Like the shadows of ourselves, the characters appear familiar but alienated, immobilized and vibrant at the same time, floating in their own world beyond all the contours of known worlds. If it is possible to get at all the forms of contemplation, then these plays are her most refined vision, which, ultimately, lacks sexuality, regardless of the visible marks of femininity. And we move much further from the vision, towards the abstraction of the melancholy of the Mediterranean and, in general, of a man living by the sea, those from which great works of art and philosophy came. Perhaps the answer lies in the paradox of existence, in the heady atmosphere of the beautiful blue sky, sun, light, flora, human by some counterpoint, turning to self, self, tired of the noise of the world and the tension of the senses. Reducing the palette to variations of white, light ocher and accents of red, with extremely thoughtful collage of non-painting matter (lace, wood, ribbon), even parts of their own paintings, as a kind of back and forth crayfish artistic and paradoxical walk in time, are part of a subtly elaborated artistic project. "
