DRAGOMIR MISINA

Dragomir Misina’s paintings are an exploration of colour, texture, mark making and the process of painting itself. He uses the process of painting to document the physical and psychological presence, investigating the communicative function of colour and form as a reaction. Concerned with the delicate balance of chaos and order, Misina’s artworks combine deliberation and chance, functioning as a diagram of layers, marks and colours, creating gateways into make-believe worlds. The starting point of each painting is based on some form of narrative, which inevitably informs the course of painting. However, in the process of painting, Misina believes it is not a questions of making ever more references to the narrative, but a deliberate attempt to escape from it. Therefore, the paintings may be observed for what they are rather than what they should mean. Misina advocates the true essence behind connecting with a work: take it for what it is and how it feels to you, and not what you think you should be feeling.
