we are pleased to invite you to the opening of the exhibition Twilights by Goran Dužević on Friday, 28 June 2019 at 9pm in the Juraj Plančić Gallery of Stari Grad Museum. The exhibition will run until 25 July 2019.
From the introduction to the exhibition catalogue (Thomas Thyllack):
With his new paintings Goran Dužević reveals in a new way his homeland and abstraction, the essential elements of his artistic creation. In his paintings, this close connection with his island Hvar and the seascapes point to the fascinating expression of his artistic creative power.
In his works he introduces the imagination of what is otherwise not seen. He evokes the essence of the landscape to the observer. The paintings reveal the emergence of the earthly paradise. They reveal his homeland and his soul through which the archetypes of nature pass through. That’s why his art is so authentic and convincing.
Goran Dužević was born in 1956. Inheriting from his ancestors the unrest, wanderings and moving, it all just continued because of his father’s work. He spent his childhood in different cities. Sixteen years of his life he spent in Skopje, Macedonia, where he completed high school and university, but he spent most of his time in Berlin, Germany where he moved in 1992. He is a member of the BBK Association of visual artists of Berlin and he participated in many humanitarian exhibitions whose income was intended for children victims of war in Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina. He was awarded many scholarships and awards, and was also a scenographer for theatrical performances. Behind him there are more than 50 solo exhibitions, as well as numerous group exhibitions in galleries, museums and other public institutions. His paintings can be found in several public and many private collections. Since 2014, he lives and works in Stari Grad, in his studio “Art to go”.
We look forward to your visit!
