Jasnica Klara Matiĉ’s mixed media work is a bevy of twinned representations. Her compositions are organic both in the way her subjects seem to grow from and out from the canvas, and in their metaphorical significance. We see her subjects bound up intrinsically with the earth and it’s processes; shapes seem to split away from each other like mitosis, what seems like one thing slides easily around the viewers eye and mind to become something more biological and elemental. These formidable themes and questions- birth and death, the inherent impermanence of our reality, and the spiritual kinesis of human beings in relation to the earth and the elements- are balanced with a lovely and light palette that gives one the feeling of serenity. Her work is heavily textured using materials such as incense, wax, salt, and herbs traditionally used in healing practices.
Jasnica has spent more than fifteen years exploring different aspects of spirituality. She uses painting as a means of healing and reconciling the mind and body.
