The autumn season of monthly exhibitions will be opened by Monika Slemc, a young artist currently working towards an M.A. in Painting at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Ljubljana. In her work, she is interested primarily in the relationship between man and nature during an era of increasing technological advancement, thereby also questioning the position of painting as a medium in the time of contemporary technology. The emphasis lies on the creative process itself – through various procedures, she strives to establish a focused view, where the image doesn’t submit to the viewer, but rather constantly eludes him.
Monika Slemc (1994) enrolled at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design after finishing the Secondary School for Design and Photography in Ljubljana, graduating under Prof. Zmago Lenárdič in 2017. She is currently enrolled in postgraduate studies at the Academy, focusing primarily on painting and sculpture. Her artistic opus reflects on the status of painting today, with one of the main motifs and sources of inspiration being nature.
