With her In the Fog exhibition Tina Konec presents her newest series of works, which follows the progression of one day: it begins with a sleepy January morning wrapped in fog, behind which the sun occasionally shows its rays. This idea came about when the artist was piling art works of larger formats one on top of another. Drawn elements were showing through the paper, creating an extraordinary visual effect. One autumn morning, while observing the fog, a constant companion of those chilly days, the artist suddenly envisioned her future works in the mist, something that had until then represented a visual riddle. In its very core, the drawing preserves the artist’s appreciation and respect for nature, the sensibility of which she captures on paper. With their apparent universality, her works point to the fragility of impermanence. The artist, with a meditative process, portrays a self-sufficient, untamed nature, the diminishment of which will be, due to the ubiquitous concept of perpetual growth and progress, felt by mankind. Both nature and art do not merely represent a place for a privileged withdrawal and respite from reality, but also a gathering place for new ideas, in-depth reflections, values and hopes.
