Aleksandar Duravcevic

Page 1 | Biography


The subtle subject matter and images of Duravcevic’s works are rooted in his personal experiences of living through the changing political landscape of his native Montenegro. Growing up with a lineage of conflicting cultures and religions in what was then Yugoslavia, and having to experience war and emigration to America later on, the artist is interested in presenting duality in his work. A process of his own search for identity. Duravcevic uses his deep wealth of knowledge of all aspects of history for the metaphors that become the subject of his work.

By working with graphite on black paper for example, or by using mirrored surfaces and glass, a ghostly quality is achieved, making the viewer have to look twice or pay closer attention. This is in the very heart of Duravcevic´s work. He draws objects of luxurious beauty that may at first attract but that raise thought as one investigates their histories, or portray something disturbing that may actually hold a fond memory. The constant tension of opposites is ever present in his work - between cultures, within history, and between life and death.
