Slobodanka Stupar, (Sarajevo, 1947), is Serbian visual artist who lives and works in Belgrade, Athens and Cologne.

Biography[edit]

Slobodanka Stupar graduated from Applied Arts School in Belgrade (B.F.A.)

She graduated School of Fine Arts at University of Belgrade (M.F.A.)

She specialized at the School of Fine Arts in Athens.

The work[edit]

The separation of elementary metaphors and other figurative mechanisms, i.e. deconstruction, has become an effective tool for understanding and interpreting recent visual art. This is especially true where the artist has moved from a more “classical” form of expression, arising from an academic training, to a practice involving a visualized language and semantic composition mode of expression, of which Slobodanka Stupar is an example. This transition was all the more likely in her case given the freedom which she already had in using the graphic art medium, closer to experimentation than the reproduction of any standard approach. Even from the outset of her artistic career she had been leaning towards a reexamination of the expressive capabilities of visual art.[1] Combining the incompatible, to maintain any discourse (in this case visual) one has to remove or circumvent ordinary comprehensibility, or “sense”; to make something “apparent” the plastic narrative had to be reduced to the brink of unrecognizability in order to be “seen” as a new work. This is precisely the kind of work Stupar has been producing over the last few years. The works at this exhibition are among those which have emerged from this new understanding of the function of art works as self-sufficient structures of meaning, autonomously establishing the scope of their own significance.[2]
