Blind Faith and Mute Bodies… The Dark Paintings of VLADA MIRKOVIĆ

VLADA MIRKOVIĆ takes reality and reflects it back at us in a surreal and disturbing way.  Most of his human subjects are faceless or wearing masks – many with the Mona Lisa’s face – and are reminiscent of the glowing, gorgeous paintings of the Renaissance. Similarly, Mircović’s paintings are telling a story to the viewer, encouraging us to look inside ourselves for the universe he portrays on canvas. His work also has a strong religious theme running through it – blasphemously nude women mimicking crucifixion, ark builders and cathedral-like settings bring to mind the idea of blind faith, bodies mute except for the psalms they repeat. While the bright colors may not signify the darkness human beings carry and inflict on each other, Mircović’s paintings are unsettling in their dark depiction of our world.
