After that, Mile Albijanić, a visual artist from Tivat, addressed the audience, who opened the exhibition:
"God's most beautiful creature is the flower. That crunch of flamboyant scents of light. To paint flowers, opting for this venture is neither simple nor easy. As there would be no colors if we did not steal them from the flowers, so there is no artist who has not tried to paint flowers. Natasa does this layered, very layered, ranging from light to secret. The layers that fit in the picture are like waves, each particularly airy, touched by a special secret, one of the finest golden lines weaved with the sun's rays, the second of the moonlight silver cobweb, the third of the fine note weaving, like Chopin's music. The creator, besides the flowers, also created another ornament, plain, whimsical, extinct, mysteriously deep and agitated, as strong as the sea and as light as breath, a decoration called the woman. The Lydia women, like Matisse and Modigliani, who are very seductive, the Nymphs of Baltus or Lolita Nabokov, and yet essentially strong and true. Women, those bodies that speak with fire and water, play here, mix with flowers smelled and washed with the scent and music of its petals. The feminine principle of profound wisdom and intuition, both light and darkness, face and back, and those delicate natural strings, all have been caught up in Lidia's paintings. The common painting for these two artists is the female principle. Even though they come from Siberia, there is a lot of sunshine in their pictures. The images exude the warmth of a good summer, the warmth of the daylight and the warmth of the soul that gave them life."
The exhibition will be open to the public until September 2nd, 2018.
