~THE BRUCENNIAL – FOCUS: IVANA BASIC
IVANA BASIC . . is the name of artist who did that ‘GIRLS ONLY’,
ghostly strange haunting transparent beautifully realized and articulated, melancholy and erotic,
a hanging piece – in the window of the BRUCENNIAL 2014 exhibit.
it hangs like a heavy gauge piece of mylar, as opposed to fabric.
so it doesn’t flutter, but upside . . it is both transparent, and opaque depending on the light,
time of day, and . . how you walk around it.
a self-described ‘multi-media’ artist, according to her website – she was born in BELGRADE, SERBIA.

AND, the site is very playful . . tech-wise.
she is definitely a ‘materials’ person, as well as an incredible draftsperson.

it is animated, with the wind blowing through the leaves on the tree, and the long blue grasses shiver.
