“By painting with large brushes on the floor, with all four directions in space, north, south, east, west, which is not done accidentally, because the very inner space, that is, the inner dimension is a circle-the center of universe, one cycle-infinity, outer space, man and his destiny, the painter performs a ritual, which is repeated throughout various epochs of a man’s existence”. Natalija Djuranovic MAF

Studio 106 Art Gallery is delighted to host an exhibition of prominent Montenegrin artist Mirjana Marsenic. The exhibition includes paintings acrylic on canvas, mix media and installation. All works are exclusively commissioned for this exhibition and are for first time presented to British public. The exhibition is supported by Ministry of Culture Montenegro and Borough of Berane.
In her exhibition “Passage of Time: The moment of recollection”, Marsenic unites different artistic moments into one composition creating continuity and dialog and by interconnecting them all into one, she conduct evocative extended story. Artist intention is to create narrative shaped by seemingly insignificant smaller tales discovered and noted during the art-making process and communicated through her art. It is that moment, when artist stop and turn- beck, the “moment of recollection”, that Marsenic finds incredibly profound and often challenging, in the process of preserving the emotion, the idea, meaning, purpose and direction in creating an artistic expression.
Mirijana Marsenic was born in Montenegro. She studied on Faculty of Fine Art in Cetinje, Montenegro and completed her MAF in Fine Art in 2013. She exhibited widely in her country of origin as well as internationally, including Pont –Aven, Nica, Belgrade, and many more. As one of the most prominent Montenegrin artist, she was the representative of Montenegro on 7 – Francophone Games in Nice , selected by the International Commission for the French language and cultural diversity.
