Tijana Titin | MyArtSpace

The focus of my works is human being, his position in the contemporary world, as well as interpersonal relations. I observe them from different perspectives and am making my own, nuanced take.

Similarly to Francis Bacon, who said: "I would like my pictures to look as if a human being had passed between them, like a snail leaving its trail of the human presence... as a snail leaves its slime", I too am attempting to reach the human essence in my works. I want to give people a reason to pause, to reflect, to take a deep look into themselves. That is where the feelings are and that is what links us together. There we are the most vulnerable, there we are the closest to each other.

Dealing with inner worlds interest me - a visualization of the invisible. In all my works I use both figuration and abstraction. My aim is to give a few directions to the viewer, without revealing the final destination or becoming too illustrative. Figures are often appearing from and then disappearing back into an abstract space, which causes the feeling of constant flow within the painting. The space, however, I don't consider to be a classical background. For me, it represents the internal of the figures. The spaces and the figures in most of my works are one being.
