9780856676505: Vojo Stanic: Sailing on Dreams

“Painting is the simplest and most accessible of art forms. Painting can touch anyone, even the most naïve. And even the works of the greatest masters show an essential naïvety and that may be the very thing which makes the painting good. When I say naïvety, I mean the spiritual freshness that some people manage to preserve throughout the whole of their lives.” --Vojislav Stanic

For over half a century the Montenegrin painter Vojislav Stanic has been living and working in the small town of Herceg Novi, observing the lives of its inhabitants from the window of his attic studio with a sharp eye and an impish intelligence. Here, so Stanic claims, is a microcosm of life. One can see universal emotions and traits--love, lust, joy, fear, wonder, jealousy--played out in the parks and cafés of this bustling little port town on the Adriatic. But if many of Stanic’s insights come from keen observation of his neighbors, it is his idiosyncratic outlook and his eye for absurdities and gentle ironies which make his work so compelling. And if he draws on the work of such artists as Bosch, Magritte and de Chirico, it is always with a lightness of touch which leaves one in no doubt that Stanic is a major artistic talent in his own right. This book, including insightful essays which trace his artistic development and explore his uniquely vital imagination, promises to bring his work to the international audience it deserves.
