Literally taking on an extra dimension, Alesandro Ljubicic’s floral paintings radiate emotion and colour as he densely scoops and smears oils across large-format linen canvases. Until May 20 at Armadale’s Scott Livesey Galleries, the Australian artist presents Intrinsic Nature, a new exhibition that sets out to display the passion and fervour that is showcased throughout nature all around us. This new body of work sees Ljubicic find new ways to interpret the age-old humble floral painting and consider the works of several Australian and international florists.
Ljubicic is a Bosnian-born contemporary artist who is based in Sydney, where he studied at the National Art School. Known for creating oil paintings that climb off the canvas with a uniquely sculptural flair, Ljubicic has exhibited at the Sydney Contemporary Art Fair, while also presenting solo shows in Melbourne, Sydney and Berlin.
