This summer, visitors to the island of Vis will have a special opportunity to see a unique and rather whimsical exhibition titled Dreamland. The young Australian artist of Croatian origin who is responsible for this exhibition is Maya Kolega, having studied at the University of South Australia with a degree in Visual Arts. Kolega uses her artistic prowess to create and document images through photography and illustration, making her Dreamland exhibit a treat for your eyes.
The ever so hip, historic, and 19th century era Fort George will be hosting the exhibition, crafting an even more perfect and imaginary experience for this implied dreamstate.
Kolega, an academically educated artist who creates her works with familiar everyday things, objects, people and situations, is pushing the boundaries of reality while opening up a world of fantasy. Kolega draws inspiration for her works from the journeys she has taken around the world, and through the film she develops when she returns back home.
Each piece in Maya’s work is a step into her world, communicating through an image what cannot be expressed through words. Her latest exhibit will surely sweep art enthusiasts to the most dreamy of destinations, awakening the senses and emotions in ways that could only happen through dreams.
Dreamland will run through July 14th, with another Kolega exhibit following titled This Place I Call Home from July 14th to August 31st.
Gallery hours are 12pm-10pm.
