ABOUT LANDSCAPE AND HIDING IN THE WORKS OF IVAN ŠULETIĆ
The artistic praxis of Ivan Šuletić is based on a fundamental analytical approach to the medium of painting and also on the examination of its representational qualities – a precise painterly methodology consequently carried out during the process of the structuring of a painting as a contemplative space with its own complex history and political role, and its subsequent execution of the canvas. In his recent works, shown at the exhibition Cityscape: Sequel Šuletić applies that procedure starting from landscape - the artist does not perceive it as a genre definition, but as a concept of scene (of natural of urban scape) constitution by the means of painting. In other words, he is not interested in landscape as the subject matter, for him it is a self-reflexive painterly praxis, a culturally defined practice.
