Rackov Miladinka

     
     

Rackov Miladinka (Serbia)

1898-1978

     
  Rackov Miladinka - On a Meadow       She was born in Novi Bečej in 1898. She began doing painting in 1920. A short time before her death, in 1978, she participated in the Salon at Gallery of Self-taught Artists in Jagodina. Unconsciously achieved lucidity of pictorial expression, rhythm, good sense of composition and permanent complementary colouring make her not abundant oeuvre a good example of the purity of artistic experience. The prevailing, perfect balance in her paintings captivates us with its naivety and frontally construed composition with rhythmical repetition of similar elements. She most often painted on canvas, then on plywood and fibreboard, depicting everything around her, although she sometimes ventured to take some Old Testament topic. The subject such as Noah’s Bark was thus proper for her, because it provided a vast domain where she was able to express her lyricism and love for animals. A regular order of virtues and harmony of relationships of all species reveal her sublimity and freedom in the treatment of this ancient motif.
In her pagan love for nature she was often devoted to dong landscapes. Her charming frontality, simplicity and easiness in achieving rhythm reveal the author’s inclination towards fancy and phantasmagoria. The sense of chromatic relations was unconsciously grasped, which was also one of her specific characteristics.
