Haos Gallery

Saša Marjanović, Artwork, Belgrade

A fascinating exhibition of thirty-two drawings by an artist who completed his post-graduate studies in 2010 (Faculty of Fine Arts, University of Belgrade) and who has already won several awards and sent his work to exhibitions abroad (Italy, Slovakia, Switzerland and Japan). He uses lead pencil or black charcoal on white paper and his technique gives the drawings a monumental, sculptural quality that make them stick in your mind. Many are of children shown in ordinary ways – sitting, eating, reading or playing but there are also submarines at sea or drawings of nothing but the sea. The subjects are oddly varied; some relate to cinema (Bergman, Tarkovsky) while the blur looks to Richter. About 80% of the drawings have already been sold. The exhibition continues until February 16th 2015. At the Haos Gallery, Dositejeva 3, Belgrade http://www.gallerychaos.com/

Ratko Lalic, Drawings, Belgrade

Currently on display in an award-winning gallery specialising in the exhibition of drawings is a retrospective of a highly considered, internationally acclaimed, bosnian-born artist who lives and works in Belgrade. The drawings are witness to several decades of work and they all relate to Ratko Lalic’s intense engagement with the materiality of nature. Drawing means a mixture of pencil, pen, ink, watercolour, collage and paint. What it produces are zoomed-in explorations of trees, trunks, branches, paths, nests, birds, petals and stones. The images offer intricate, dense networks of criss-crossed lines that are set against delicate colour tints – pale greys and blues, whites, greens or browns – painted-in incompletely onto textured paper. Some look botanical, others architectural. The titles record subjects in general terms, yet the drawings give aesthetic and imaginative life to the very organic particulars of Sunflowers, Roots, Vines, Blades of Grass and Traces in the Snow. Lalic sells and exhibits all over the world. This exhibition is at the Haos Drawing Art Gallery, Dositejeva 3, 11000, Belgrade. From 12h to 20h every day until 21st November 2014 see www.galleryhaos.com
