"The Scent of Summer" art exibition

Art Gallery Luna + Sol at Dubrovnik Palace Hotel proudly announces the second exhibition of the season - "The Scent of Summer ' by painter Bane Milenković.

According to art critic Feđa Gavrilović,

"the opus of Bane Milenković starts with very old themes such as panoramas and still life. He covers his canvas area with geometrical surfaces by using intensive colours, sometimes clear and sometimes with a visible under-paint.

The logic of each painting reveals itself in a balance of lighter and darker components, in a contrast which emphasizes the central motif. In the motifs such as still life, it is an aquarium with fish, a vase with flowers or a bowl of fruit, most often isolated on the surface, as the centre of the coloristic organism of the painting. Milenković’s brush stroke is simple and very powerful, the lines are full and their continuity gives the impression of lightness of creation, while using impasto technique on his surfaces, sometimes with a spatula, emphasizing its matter-like quality.

The actions often used in the portrayal of the Mediterranean motifs are the accentuation of the abundance in the art of painting with intensive colours and simple, energetic drawing. The way Bane Milenković uses them speaks of a successfully mastered style, not only of the genre, but the painting itself. The paintings of Bane Milenković radiate certain calmness, intimacy and discrete atmosphere.

The exhibition will be displayed by the beginning of August.

See you there!
