Pavlović Miodrag (Serbia)

     
  Pavlović Miodrag - Conversation       As a resident of the Institute for Mental Health in Belgrade, Serbia he painted from 1960-1970. He was a cobbler, but his most representative realisations were made at "Institute for Mental Health" in Palmotićeva in Belgrade, where he was treated for many years.
As a result of psychotherapy, Pavlović’s inventive landscapes reveal certain pathology (obsessive repetition of the same motifs) together with a series of aesthetic parameters (a sense for measure, rhythm, harmony). Characteristic dynamics of a composition, based on a tautology of figures, objects or some other details and reduced palette (within one or two colours) point to mental over-sensitiveness of the author, obviously artistically gifted. Pavlović received most important creative stimuli from his therapist Dr Ljubomir Erić, who was the first to present Pavlović’s work in his study "Psychopathology and Psychoanalysis in Artistic Expression". Health anomalies were in this case a creative catalyst, which revealed a series of new aesthetic moments within the work. These unique biographies were sometimes the only communication of the artist with the outside world.
