The exhibition Images of Nature presents a selection of works by Slovenian female artists who approach the depiction of nature in a specific, sensitive way, which is manifested in innovative approaches to the depiction of nature’s segments. The works of Anja Jerčič Jakob, Tina Konec, Maja Pučl, Lucija Stramec and Joni Zakonjšek are characterized by an original blend of painting skill with a contemporary conceptual approach in depicting those dimensions of nature that, based on immersion in oneself and simultaneous absorption in nature, testify above all to their personal, direct and elementary experience of oneness with nature. In a world flooded by digitized images, the works, with their convincing and specific visual language, offer viewers a space for meditative contemplation. Even though they do not emphasise environmental issues directly, their works do immanently reflect the relationship and deep dependence of humans on nature. In this sense, their works are complemented by the authorial project of the tandem Plateauresidue, a duo that approaches nature through other media, but addresses the issue of nature’s changing due to humanity and draws attention to the consequences that human activity leaves in nature.
