“Meeting Place” 2018
deep within, where a profound and dense stillness can be found
where body, mind and soul unite
where kinship is experienced
where true acceptance is known
This series is an expression of my emotions during a time of unprecedented acceptance. It is a time when humans are speaking out and reaching out. I rejoice in the knowledge that individuals are finding like-minded souls, are able to share authentic versions of themselves and experiencing the buoyancy of kinship.
The Meeting Place harbours my intuition. It’s the place where I store my romantic notion that there is more to our existence than meets the eye. Harmony in the palette. A nurturing undertone with a sense of spirituality.
In her latest body of work, Sydney based artist Antonia Mrljak, creates a visual language that pushes the boundaries of verbal communication as we know it.
Examining the interpretation of form, Antonia studies the role of conceptuality in her art. Despite relying on physical forms to communicate her message (ie paintings on canvas or paper) she uses a symbol based language to convey meaning and share an infinite variety of messages and emotions.
