Creating a sense of infinite space with the application of small, layered marks of paint, Dragica Milunovic’s works transport the viewer through the use of multiplication and reduction, transparency and reflection. These optical impressions imbue a sense of weightlessness on the canvas and 3D acrylic surfaces in Milunovic’s solo exhibition Floating Marks, held at Mundaring Arts Centre from 24 March to 30 April 2017.
Dragica Milunovic is a Western Australian contemporary painter whose artistic practice is inspired by the abstract minimalist artworks of Kazimir Malevich and Yayoi Kusama. Milunovic obtained a Master of Art (Visual Arts) from Curtin University of Technology in 2007. She has exhibited in over 17 solo exhibitions in Australia and almost 70 group shows nationally and internationally. Milunovic’s works are represented in public and private art collections including Central Metropolitan TAFE, Perth, and the City of Wanneroo Collection.
Floating Marks opens at 7pm Friday 24 March in Mundaring Arts Centre’s Gallery 1 space. The artist will host an informal discussion and afternoon tea in the gallery on the final day of the exhibition, Sunday 30 April, from 1pm.
The Gurawu Collection | Yamaji Artists, an exhibition celebrating the wildflower stories and landscapes of the Yamaji region in Midwest WA, will be on display in the adjoining exhibition space, Gallery 2, also from 24 March to 30 April 2017.
