Made from ink, gouache, watercolor and marker, this work depicts alluring figures stand beneath an array of celestial and mysterious symbols in a swirling, dream-like backdrop of pure color.
Ljiljana Blazevska’s works, created over five decades and only recently seen in the US, draw from a combination of Levantine and European influences. Her painterly style conveys a dream-like personal mythology devoid of ordinary narratives. The world she constructs is populated by winged creatures, mutants, princes, mothers and brides.
