Jarmila Kostliva - Contemporary Art



In my work, I follow the inspired thought about space, forms, dimensions and color themes. My interest in dynamic structures in nature has been my focus in the last decade, either created as allegorical, representational, or entirely abstract works in concept. I explore the imagery of primordial life and biomorphic forms, metaphorically related to the human physical structure. I am searching for the connections centered on myth, and symbols, relating to past and future, to open the undercurrent motives of our existence. I often draw inspiration from the references in my sketchbook, referring to history, science, and archaeology, and apply them in juxtaposition to contemporary subjects. I allow myself to be guided by forthcoming intuitions by working in various media, mostly in acrylic, oil, mixed media, photography and new media, as an experimental form. Life experiences, studies of classical music, psychology, and ancient cultures are an additional supply of material I use as a tool support. The curiosity and wonder in the process of creativity, stimulated by the individual views and notions, is the effective motivation for my work. New values created, I continue to discover the art the essence of life and living
