Dio Horia recently closed I Will Find You, an exhibition of works by Maja Djordjevic at the gallery’s Mykonian location. Djordjevic creates multi-disciplinary works that look like computer doodles. In reality, they are traditional oil and enamel artworks performing pixelated illusions. She paints rectilinear shapes by hand, sketched out in an early kind of MacPaint program, where squares of color are so large that they obscure detail.
I Will Find You consists of 5 new paintings and one plastic sculpture (that is actually made out of two separate sculptures joint together like in an origami). The subject matter of the exhibition touches on issues of mindfulness or better, the lack of mindfulness where humans always search for the utopian, perfect moment instead of living their lives and accepting that it is perfect as it is. Through the depiction of the girl on semi-violent, semi-comical situations (in one of the paintings the pixelated girl appears super fit with her muscles having a tank and a rose tattooed on them and at the same time hiding behind a plant), the artist comments on her own micro-cosmos and from there, on the crazy world we live in and on how we actually need to have a laugh or two to get by.
