Series 001
2020


An investigation of the manual printing technique and the power and meaning of original artworks, this series explores the duality of the individual and the collective – the simultaneous human need for belonging and uniqueness.  Repetition and collectivism are materialized in the screen printing process, a manual yet mechanical technique that creates a sense of uniformity and continuity.

Series 002 
Color pencil and acrylic on paper, 50x70 cm
2020


This series interrogates the common understanding of the natural effects of time. Loss and damage are referred to as vanishing processes, yet every deconstruction coexists with a symbolic gain. Posing a sincere question, rather than hinting at any answers, these works are an invitation to reflect on the subject's projection of meaning.

Marker on silk paper, 50x70 cm
2019

       

Drawn by hand using black marker on silk paper, these sketches are an investigation of composition and scale. Parting from organic forms that will develop over time to become recurring elements of the artist's work, these lively and forms and shapes are explored, repeated, modified and layered providing the viewer with a fundamental perspective to the artist's visual language.

Series 004
Color pencil and acrylic on paper, 29,7 x 42 cm
2020



In this signature series, Ivan parts from figurative shapes to create whimsical compositions that portray austere everyday objects surrounded by an oneiric atmosphere. There is a striking contrast between the severity of the depicted objects and the meditative quality of the series. Such polarity is paralleled by the treatment of colour: the solid quality of acrylic blends with the softer expression of the pencil, defining a cohesive language.
