Danilo Stojanović: Shoreline
May 1–June 1, 2022

Over and over, Danilo Stojanović’s paintings return to the presence of water as something eternal. Running through the fundamental fabric of our lives and at the same time symbolizing creative, emotional force itself, its liquid qualities reach deep. Shoreline slips through time by a few years, beginning with Low tide at dusk (2018). This work is close to monochromatic, a faded teal view of steep rocky peaks on a shoreline. Stojanović dips into a colder, darker palette of watery blues, greens, and grays, as if the remaining works are all set after dusk. Their images sink into each other. Stojanović’s paintings don’t fit into one genre or framework, recalling gothic aesthetics, surrealism, sci-fi thrillers, still lives, or Giorgio de Chirico as a precursor. What ties them together is instead an emotional sensibility and potential irony, which ricochets in their titles: clairvoyance, heartbreak, anxiety, romance, a birthmark. The last work in the show returns to the shore, now with a figure scratched into its murky atmosphere—Stojanović configures images as apparitions.

Danilo Stojanović (b. 1989, Pula, Croatia) lives and works in Venice, Italy. He graduated Painting at the Accademia di Belle Arti di Venezia (BFA 2013/MFA 2018). Recent exhibitions include: I Walk Thru Walls, Mepaintsme, (2022); Carnival Dream, G/ART/EN Gallery, Italy (2022); Mourning the Red Cactus, Andrea Festa Fine Art, IT (2021); 07, PM/AM, UK (2021); Les Danses Nocturnes, Eastcontemporary/Spread Museum, FR (2021); Sworm: Balla Balaclavas and the Shithead Baroque, Super Dutchess, NY (2020); and Be careful what you wish for (the fire is in the underbelly), U10 Art Space, RS (2019).
