Goran Kosanović, ‘Postcards’

Athens/Greece

Nice/France

Renoir’s House/France

Eight ‘Postcards’ by respected Serbian artist Goran Kosanović, painted in acrylic, enhanced with ink, framed in heavy gilt frames and hung against a crimson strip of wall. Each painting is derived from a photo taken with a mobile phone. Translated into bright colour and flat, simple form the effect is whimsical. The paintings play to local traditions of naive art, but instead of serbian farms and folklore we have tourist sites and European cities: Florence, Barcelona, Nice, Athens and Budapest – a lake in Austria, a balcony in Serbia and Renoir’s house in Provence. Galerija Zvono, Višnjićeva 5, Belgrade until 6th May 2014
