Dinić Milanka

     
     

Dinić Milanka (Serbia)

1923-2016

     
  Dinić Milanka - The Well of Wisdom   She was born in Kolari near Jagodina (Serbia) in 1938. She began doing painting in 1971. She resided in Jagodina, Serbia. She had solo and group exhibitions in the country and abroad and participated in significant international events, such as Triennial in Bratislava (Slovakia) and Biennial at NNMA in Jagodina, Serbia, where she received awards for the exhibited works (Grand Prix at the Thirteenth Biennial, MNMA, Jagodina Serbia. Her most representative realisations are in the MNMA collection in Jagodina.
Her oeuvre is characterised by a blend of elements of folk, naïve and outsider art. She was inspired by folk sagas and legends, which resulted in dragons, royal castles, ritually invented mystical rituals.
Human figures and imaginary hybrid creatures are walking along fictitious gardens of paradise. Her colouring is intensive and raw. Ornamental and decorative treatment of forms, achieved by dots, lines and vaults create a unique rhythm in the canvas. Metamorphosis of shapes and an unusual harmony of floral, anthropomorphic and zoomorphic elements in the paintings point to horror vacui. With her creative fancy, the artist has made authentic parables and tales about the good and the evil. By using the mosaic of coloured, vibrant pigments, she achieves optical effects. Frontal construction of her compositions, surrealist subject matters and authentic chromatic dance are the main characteristics of her expression.
