Agata Pavlovec: A man rushing past
Agata Pavlovec (1973) graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts with a degree in painting and completed a Pedagogical Andragogical Education at the Faculty of Education. She has had 26 solo exhibitions and participated in more than 100 group exhibitions, art colonies, ex-times and festivals at home and abroad. In addition to painting, she is involved in organizing exhibitions and events, teaching activities such as art courses, workshops and lectures, as well as stage design for various events.
This time Agata presents us with her new cycle of Mimobežnik – A man rushing past, where she is once again in the forefront of the figure, but it should be emphasized that she is not Agata’s eternal companion. It appears, disappears, and is replaced by universal motifs that speak the language of colour. However, with each piece, one can feel the artist’s dedication to the chosen moment, that period. Images are collected, accumulated, documented in such a way that the artist’s life, her thoughts, her brain occupy the place when they finally erupt in the invisible paths to the hand that records all that fundamental human. Her sensibility to anything so slight that makes her invisible wounds open to her can only be healed by a line, by colour. Passion is the focal point of the painter’s thoughts. Man rushing past are dark figures, built without all their personal characteristics, silhouettes that radiate a kind of anguish, which is expressed by an extremely intense coloured atmosphere. the background sends in the viewer. They are not only acquaintances; those who appeared and disappeared in the author’s life, but a broader image of a society where passers-by come from everywhere with all sorts of intentions and needs. They are the ones who are invisible, undetectable, irrelevant. Fugitives, hunters of new nicer dreams for themselves.
