An exhibition of paintings and drawings by academic painter Naod Zorić will be opened on March 6, 2018, by the art historian Anastazija Miranović in Podgorica, at the Modern Gallery at 8 pm. On Wednesday at 7 pm, the promotion of the monograph of this artist will be held by the publishing house "Obodskog slova" from Podgorica and "Štampar Makarije" from Belgrade.
Zorić told "Vijesti" that he prepared 34 canvases, mostly larger formats, and that this was not a retrospective, but marks 30 years of creativity.
The introductory text of the catalog is signed by academic Niko Martinović, the gallery said. Martinović, among other things, wrote about Zorić's creativity and that he was not "the patron of aesthetics defined by divine harmony and ideal proportions".
"On the contrary, he demonstrates an emphasized deformity or disproportion in the creation of characters, focusing on the topic. He strives to see the fervor of evocating time passed and man's fight with fate, and thus created art that resonates with time," Martinović writes, emphasizing “mental images” with “powerfully shown heads and almost always degenerated hands."
Zorić was born in 1968 in the village of Đurđević Tara. He completed the Department of Painting at FLU in 1993 in Cetinje, in the class of professor. Dragan Karadžić. In 1995, he completed his postgraduate studies in Belgrade, in the class of professor Radomir Reljić. He is a member of ULUCG.
