Talking Prints – Jadranka Njegovan

Posted by on May 5, 2011 in Talking Prints

On the 11th May we were very pleased to welcome our first International visitor as part of the Talking Prints programme.

Jadranka Njegovan studied at the Royal Academy of Visual Arts, The Hague.

Jadranka works predominantly with drawing, lithography and photography.   She also writes for several printmaking magazines and periodicals.  Her work plays with the notions of ‘abstract’ and ‘figurative’.

The images in her lithographs are not directly based on observation of reality but on basic elements; line and tone. Lines are freely drawn on the lithographic stone and once they are given a shadow, suddenly become wires, branches or something lying on a surface. A space is created. An abstract drawing becomes figurative.
