Artist Statement
The exclusive interest in my work is focused on the portrait. In recent years limited to drawing as pictoral means of expression, meanwhile extended to painting. Although influenced by expressive painting my central concern lies not in the discussion on the medium of painting per se, but in its use best suited to me as means of directly and immediately reproducing the tension between the artist as subject and the object (the portrayed person). The choice of sitters stands at the beginning of my work and is decisive for the outcome ("success") of a portrait. Only seldom is it possible to generate a tension between me and the opposite. Through the placement of ads in various newspapers, spontaneously speaking to people in the street, on the Underground, etc. a range of choice opens up, allowing me to find an individual I can identify with. Sex, nationality, age or class make no difference. To create a visual experience of the "in between" of two subjects is to be seen as the essential starting point of my artistic work. Ultimately the outcome can be understood as a "phantom image" overlaying my own "self" with that of the object to form one image. Nor me nor you, says Bataille, but something else happens between us: something drifting from one person to another when we laugh or make love. Something fading in the very moment of its occurrence. Something inhuman, beyond the field of understanding. Life doesn’t exist in language, how stupid!” (Shaviro, Kathy Acker, S.121, in Doom Patrols) Jadranka Kosorcic
