Maja Djordjevic: ALL OF ME WANTS ALL OF YOU Poster
Signed and numbered edition of 153 by Maja Djordjevic. 8-color screenprint on French 100lb cover, 2019
Maja Djordjevic creates multi-disciplinary works that look like computer doodles. In reality they are traditional oil and enamel artworks performing some pixelated illusions. Djordjevic paints rectilinear shapes by hand, sketched out in an early kind of MacPaint program, where squares of color are so large as to prevent too much detail. Her subject matter is usually a girl, most of the time that girl being herself, portrayed in various tragically and yet comical situations. The girl is often depicted naked exposing with a black vertical line a little scratch of her vagina and touching art history with feminine power and twists of the male and the female gaze.
Her main color palette enhances the playfulness of her works with various pinks and blues coloring her protagonists no matter where they find themselves at. By translating the image from the digital into the tactile, analogue space of the framed painted canvas, Djordjevic is not interested at the technical innovation brought about by digital production of paintings, but rather – on the contrary – insists on the logic of the production of paintings as a space filled with meaning and, at the same time, manipulating meanings in a way through which it faces and falls short of the expectations and habits we have regarding painting as a historically based discipline.
