About The Artwork

2011: WORKS »Reality is memory. To capture reality means to capture memory. Memory comes in layers with images arising or dissolving.« »Painting is actually one of the few media, that haven't been affected by the internet. In the sense that you can't download paintings. It makes no sense. You can download music, films, books…But if you want to have a painting, you have to buy the original.« »On the other hand people like to talk how much computers and avantgardes and conceptualism have changed art. Bullshit. The afore mentioned have changed the art world, the art market and the way we see art. Art itself they haven't touched.« »…and Boštjan Jurečič with brilliantly renewed form of his new painting. (Don´t colleagues monitor his work, don't they follow him?)« Andrej Medved, senior curator, Coastal Galleries Piran, in his open letter addressed to media. »…Boštjan Jurečič, the discovery of younger/midlife generation.« Andrej Medved, senior curator, Coastal galleries Piran in »Saturday Addition« of major daily newspaper Delo, 7th January 2012.

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. There are also several video clips about my work available on my YouTube channel. 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. At work with TV Slovenia I have been since 2012 engaged in writing a widely read and commented column on contemporary art. I am also active in the field of art theory. I developed an original theory of and on the parallels between visual art and music.
