Artist Biography

Creative Concept:

Knezevic sees her works as a ceramic painting, counterpart to today's modern flat screens and billboards of mass communication.
Her creation brings a new value, a combination of contemporary laced porcelain-thread tiles, displaying pared-down design elements and classical warm, golden-baroque frame as an intention to generate drama, tension and contrast. The conflict and blend of two opposite materials in different space and time bring a new life into the work and create a universal meaning and message.
