KAREL PLEMENITAŠ: RELIEFS - MEMORY SPACES
25 June 2015 – 20 September 2015
Ljubljana Castle, Pentagonal Tower, Ljubljana
The academic painter Karel Plemenitaš develops his visual art works as intimate spatial structures with dynamically positioned relationships between their size (most are small, intimate formats), material, and colours. He most often uses various shades of white, brown and black – earthly toned colours. His essential visual expressiveness and subtly treated visual art space are based on natural forms. The artist draws them from the everyday material and personal mental world; he seemingly shapes abstract forms and embeds them in a system of symbols, interwoven with a narrative that is suggestive of archaicness. It seems as if the artist collects and studies in his works the operation of numerous ordinary tiny objects, which he discovers in the environment in which he moves, creates, and lives.
