Artist Name

Jasna Barisic

Born: 1965

Hometown: Zadar

Based in: Zadar

Jasna Barisic is a Croatian visual fine art artist born in Split with her studio in Zadar.
Nature is the greatest source of ideas and eternal inspiration for her – a painter who intuitively feels the wholeness, as well as the inextricable connection between a man and his environment, i.e. the nature that surrounds him.
The main representative of the hers visual expression is the arrangement of recycled materials in an indefinite order, which gives the impression of multidimensional space on the surface. Paintings seem to deliberately have no center; the author creates multiple focal points that generate a merging structure and thus forms a breathable living organic whole. The observer's view does not jump from one point to another, but smoothly flows over the image, resulting in an inexplicable, alluring and hypnotic force. The edges of wooden panels are piled on with precisely arranged round elements, but there is not enough space for all of them. It seems they are budding and growing one on the top of the other, thus introducing the character of sculpturality into the paintings
Since 2000, she has exhibited her work in numerous solo and group exhibitions in museums and galleries in Croatia, Italy, France, USA, Greece, Austria and Jordan.
Her works are in several public and private art collections in USA, France, Germany, Jordan, Brasil and Croatia.
Jasna Barisic represented the Republic of Croatia at the International Biennal of Contemporary Art in Florence/Italy , at the Art festival in Chania/Greece, at the United Nations Building in New York within the CA project Connecting People, Connecting Cultures, and the Jordan Art festival in Amman at the invitation of the Ministry of Culture of the Kingdom of Jordan, at Annual exhibition of German artists and guest, Kunstverein Padeborn/Germany.
She was chosen for art residencies, International Biennal Mediteran, in Trogir/Croatia
and Art & Science International Festival, in Patras/Greece.
From 2014 until 2018 she worked on project Manifestations of space, with group of artists for exhibition at the ISLAND Arts Centre, Lisburn/Northern Ireland.
Last solo exhibition of her work „The Metamorphosis of Nature“ have been held in gallery City lodge, exhibition pavilion of National Museum Zadar, Croatia in 2021.
