Jarmila Kostliva - Contemporary Art



My interest in dynamic structures in nature has been my focus in the last decade, either created as representational or entirely abstract works in concept. I explore the imagery of primordial life and biomorphic forms, metaphorically related to the human physical structure and its physiognomy. I often draw inspiration from images referring to science and history. Ancient and primitive cultures are a strong and inspirational supply of material to my work as well. Applying them in juxtaposition to contemporary subjects and ideas. I look for the expressions of undercurrent motives and a reminder of our human existence. I allow myself to be guided by forthcoming intuitions by working in diverse media, mostly in oil, acrylic, mixed media and experimenting with new media. The curiosity and wonder in the process of creativity are endless. New values created, I continue to discover the art the essence of life and living.
