Drawing: Pastel, Graphite on Paper.
Drawings of Ivana Živić present sketches for her series of human figures that swim in fantastic water landscapes decorated with eclectic architecture or dreamlike interiors.She takes refracted form of human body in water as her exploration subject and then she removes such body and puts it on the paper
independently from the context that caused deformity. Presence of water is hinted by distortion of form andther result of shading and modulation of form leads to drawing of phantasmagoric creatures that plunge into landscapes of dream and imagination. The colour with which Ivana Živić experiments in her
drawings suggests particular psychological conditions, but it also acts autonomously, formally and as a separate element which interrupts monochrome strokes of pencil and coal.
