GORDANA TOMIC

The Odyssey Within
December 29 - January 14, 2016
Reception: Thursday January 7, 2016 6-8 PM

In a review written by art critic Dragan Jovanovic Danilov, the works by Gordana Tomic are described as "caught in one cataleptic state between dream and reality." Tomic paints mainly abstract scenes filled with tempestuous colors that translate real places, like Central Park and Wall Street, into enthusiastic stylizations of harmony, emotion, and spirit. She draws from her Mediterranean background, poetry, civilization, and mythology to create her works, which Danilov has described as "gestural drama and coloristic music." 

Living in Belgrade, away from her native Montenegro, adds an extra element and dimension to Tomic's experiences as both an individual and an artist, clearly amplifying the complexity and intricacy of her work. She currently paints abstract expressionist scenes with acrylics, oils, and volcanic sand. Asked why she paints, Tomic has a ready answer. “Reality is just boring,” she says. “The beauty of art is the beauty of life.” In her works, inspired by such vast subjects like thriving metropolises and serene Japanese gardens and depicting romance, beauty, light, and vision, Tomic takes her viewers on an internal and external odyssey of self realization.
