"The author of this work is Slobodan Peladic, known in Serbian art (as well as in that of the former Yugoslavia) of the late 80s as one of the protagonists of the New Informel, of the painting of "controlled gesture", as it was called after one of the exhibitions at which it was presented at the time. Peladic's black, dense, silent, layered fields of chromatic matter, so, massive as to have relief, are still fresh in our memories; the surfaces of the usually large formats were placed in a series so as to completely take over the gallery space, even when not occupying it completely. Today, after everything that has happened, it is clear that the painting of the New Informel of the 80s, including Peladic's work of the time, was an indirect but indubitable premonition of the coming cataclysm, a sign of the tortuous existential state which nobody, not even art or artists in these spaces, could avoid in the early 90s.The creator of this project, therefore, is a former New Informel painter of the crisis ridden 80s who in the no less crisis ridden 90s, born by the ideal of constructing a new perfect form as symbolic counterweight to the general stasis, wishes to discern and announce the coming of a possible and necessary general restoration, still extremely utopian at the moment."
