About mladen lazarevic

„We are traveling, without memories, without reminiscences, without remembrances. We are traveling, without ourselves“.
+ + +
Since he created his first pieces of art some fifteen years ago, up to the pictures painted recently, Mladen Lazarević has continued to ask questions related ti different phenomena of the modern society and everyday life. By using signs / words as messages, he creates pieces which engage in personal and collective experiences. He uses the procedure of deciphering of the surroundings to turn the text into a coded character, a message which is seemingly clear and familiar, while at the same time it discovers new layers of meaning. By creating notions on the relations between presence and absence, transferring inscriptions to canvas or objects, Mladen Lazarević puts many phenomena in the center of attention. Pictures with clear messages, of characteristic typography, origin of which is in typewriters, brought onto carefully painted and tonally modified canvas surface, also bring into focus the relation between personal and general through critical examination. What is it that gives the power to language as a written massage to awaken and inspire the observer, or to transform the messsage into a pictorial field which loses sense and content in the absurdity of everyday life?
