A lovely exhibition is opening at the Flora Gallery in Dubrovnik on 2 June. Titled ‘Journey through memories’, the exhibition will present a selection of drawings by the local artist Jasmina Runja.
The wonderful ink drawings depict scenes from the artist’s childhood, situated in vast imaginary spaces on various hills, islands and other unspecified places. The scenes evoke a feeling you’re looking at drawings made by a child; not because of the technique, as Runja’s works are incredibly detailed and elaborate, but because of the surreal impression left by the images of children-like figures lost in their own world in the bucolic environment.
Jasminja Runja was born in 1983 in Split and graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts Široki Brijeg at the University of Mostar in 2006, where she continued to obtain a post-grad degree in 2008. She’s a member of the Association of Croatian Artists at both Dubrovnik and Split branches, and currently teaches art at Dubrovnik Private High School.
The exhibition is opening on 2 June at 8 PM, followed by a reception in the gallery garden. It stays open until 12 June and can be viewed every day from 4 to 9 PM.
