About The Artwork

The painting is made after a photo by Ai Weiwei. The photo is part of a catalogue of his work. PAINTINGS 2013 »Duchamp and historical avantgardes declared the end of art almost 100 years ago. Well, the end of art has now been going on for nearly 100 years. That's a little long for an end, eh? Let's declare the end of the end of art!« »There have always been parallels between 'visual' and 'sound' arts. Velazquez and Mozart, Rembrandt and Beethoven, Monet and Debussy…What are the parallels that go with Warhol, Koons, Hirst…?« »I am trying to move my art forward. Not out of any ill-conceived idea of progress, there is no progress in art. Art has to move in new directions simply because it is already old, boring and part of tradition the moment it becomes manifest on canvas.« »…it is possible to read his works as intense and original comment of various cultural, political, societal or intimate realities.« Miha Colner, curator of the group show Distorted Reality at ZDSLU Gallery, 2013 »Bostjan Jurecic, who sought his own artistic expression for quite some time after he had finished his studies at Ljubljana' Fine Art Academy, has finally established his findings in his own artistic style now distinctly recognisable.« Tatjana Pregl Kobe, chief art critic at Finance newspaper April 19th 2013

Mobile ph.: +386 41 652158 ----------------- Email: bostjan.jurecic@rtvslo.si ------------- Painter, art theorist, journalist born 1969 in Ljubljana, Slovenia. This is all of my art production so far displayed in no chronological order. I try to maintain strict quality control so I destroy more then I preserve. The icon above takes you to the virtual display of my solo show at Generali Gallery in Ljubljana. The show ran from end of December 2020 to early April 2021.There are also several video clips about my work available on YouTube. I was the worst student Ljubljana's Academy of Fine Arts could ever have. I barely passed the last year with the lowest grades. After finishing studies I wanted to drop art altogether. I got a job at the national TV of Slovenia where I still work as a journalist covering visual arts, architecture, comics, classical and contemporary music etc. After the millennium I started painting again. At first under strong influence of Basquiat, whose show I saw in Trieste at the end of the nineties. Actually it was Basquiat's show that pushed me back again into producing art. After 2003 I wanted to get rid of Basquiat's influence. So, one time I carried this one piece that had again been done in his style under water, while it was still wet. Water partially washed the image away. There was a silent scream in my head: "Look how the image dissolves." Washing the images away with water became my dominant painting technique. There were a couple of series of paintings made between 2004 and 2006 using this technique in a variety of ways. Between the beginning of 2007 and the beginning of 2010 there was a pause though. I was trying to expand on this idea and technique but wasn't successful. I realized later that I was trying too hard to show my invention as such. In early 2010 I came up with the necessary evolution. Since then, my work procedure can be described as follows: I make an image with paint. I then wait a couple of minutes till some of it has dried. I then wash the image away with water. Patches of paint remain, of course. I then repeat this procedure with another paint until something gets formed out of patches. Why is all of this important? This procedure of mine gets me beyond simple illustrating. It makes the onlooker feel as if the images got on the canvas all by themselves.
