Biography and career

Vesna Vrdoljak

Vesna Vrdoljak creative process is a blend of vintage books and magazines, photographs and ambiguous reconstruction through minute shifts in layered compositions. By slightly rearranging the layers of her collages, Vesna distorts the image’s traditional roots to convey a newly created dimension. Imbued with beauty and escapism, Vesna’s work plays off both the desire for the familiarity and the avant-garde; it is an open invitation to explore a new atmospheric plane within her work, rather than search for a definitive meaning.


 


‘the desire for the familiarity and the avant-garde’


 "I make collages to create my own reality. I cut and glue by hand. The limited possibilities of the analogue working method appeal to me. The tactility of mainly old photos and paper is a major value in my work.


With the least possible cuts I want to make a new and neat image. I like to create surreal and undefinable images to offer the viewer his own interpretation. I prefer to display an atmosphere or mood instead of a definite story; mostly tinted with a nostalgic feeling due to the old material I prefer to use.


My collages are about beauty and escapism. The pure aesthetics of composition and color combinations can be very satisfying to me."
