- Dusa Jesih
(No) dialogue it is the first solo of the Eslovenian artist Dusa Jesih in Spain in which through the basic elements of composition the artist starts a search for balance between space and time, between movement and stillness, between the finite and the infinite. This search becomes a constant in her works in which she studies the combination of image-making units and fusions of morphological and chromatic elements.
At the beginning of last century the theory of Gestalt appears in Germany stating that mind modifies shapes and realities by analysis of the information originating from the senses and memory The theory’s main motto claims: "The whole is greater than the sum of its parts.”. This principle is easy to see in the works of Dusa Jesish where her geometrical deconstructions are formed with rhythms inside and outside surface pushing the sensory experience and stimulating the all capacities from senses.
Jesih divides the surface with linear constructions towards nonsymmetrical segments but from there she does not follow neither the path of rationalistic poetics nor the preconceived logic of representation. This results into monumental geometric shapes seen as an interactive dialogue between the artist and her public.
By the use of series and patterns, the figures of Jesih co-exit at the same pictorial level in an harmonious composition. In this way, these geometrical shapes symbolize the infinite and the eternity; visual and sensorial space uncovers itself and it expands through the mind opening the gaze up. This multidisciplinary exhibition is structured through painting, installations and video in what can be called a “Gesamtkunstwerk”, “the definitive art work” revealing new perspectives and encouraging dialogue
