In a Silent Way by Tony Belobrajdic
26 November - 15 December
—Opening 26 November, Thursday 6-8pm—
In a Silent Way is the latest figurative exhibition by multi award-winning artist Tony Belobrajdic, further exploring the dynamism of the human figure and the innate relationships within oneself. In this series of work, he studies the portrayal of self by returning to the most basic form of art – drawing. The seemingly simple form is energized by his signature use of subtle colours, blending the gentle blues and pinks of skin. Belobrajdic’s creations are gestural and sensual, culminating into a fitting reflection of himself.
“These works are nearly like self-portraits in a peculiar way, portraying oneself in front of the hand grind lenses where distortion can be manipulated. My practice resembles a lens grinder, like Spinoza, exploring, striving for perfection and substance… Simplifying subject to a line brings clarity and brings us closer to the philosophy of art” – Tony Belobrajdic
