About The Artwork

"Metka" is one of the portraits of real cows from the triptych titled "Feeding time" that captures the cows in the original barn setting during their dinner. I've spent quite a lot of time with these subjects and got to know them quite well. I also named them, since they didn't have any names before I started painting them. This heifer is the daughter of Doly, the one on the left side of the group, and has a nice and calm character. Even when she fully grew up she remained a small and skinny cow but always gave birth to fine and healthy calves. She's about 6-7 years old now. Series used to consist of four portraits of cows and was also exhibited as such, but one got removed and is now remade as an individual portrait.

Lara Ješe is an artist living and working in Kranj, Slovenia. She holds an MFA in Painting and Fine Arts, acquired at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design, University of Ljubljana in Slovenia. She has also studied at the Hochschule für Grafik und Buchkunst in Leipzig, expanding her knowledge in the fields of Graphic Printing. Growing up in the countryside near Kranj, Slovenia, she found her artistic interest in animals, particularly horses and cattle, which became a recurrent subject in her work. The motif allows her to explore the balance between portraiture and figure, in other words between psyche and the flesh, and to research the body within allegorical situations.
