The author presents a diverse repertoire of artistic techniques in a solo exhibition titled Studies. While exploring a wide range of methods and motifs, it becomes apparent that her primary focus often centers around living beings, nature, and the quest to comprehend its essence. Continuously setting herself challenges and posing questions, she remains in a perpetual process, never fully concluding her work, always open to incorporating something new, exploring different possibilities in both technique and self-discovery.

Approaching art with the same curiosity as the Renaissance masters, Andrea Staničić continues the tradition of empiricism, yet within the realm of dreamy intimacy, she infuses warmth, avoiding excessive analysis that might render the work dry. Alongside drawings and graphics, the exhibition showcases photographs processed using the cyanotype method – a photographic technique known for producing blue or bluish-white images through a reaction to light. Staničić further enhances these cyanotype images with strokes of neon colors of varying intensities. She combines these sheets into an art book using the imported Japanese method. Delving into the realm of artistic ceramics, Staničić also employs linocut to create lines, which she then imprints onto fresh clay to create ceramic circles-plates of exceptional subtlety and grace. By depicting the delicate branches of trees, she emphasizes the inherent fragility of ceramics, symbolically alluding to the sensitivity of natural balance.

These works invite viewers on a journey into the realm of fine arts, where emphasis is placed on process, discovery, and play. The element of play offers opportunities for relaxation and enjoyment, fostering connection. Ultimately, play is a fundamental aspect of the human experience, contributing to emotional, social, and intellectual growth and progress. Andrea’s freedom of expression and experimentation imparts a sense of lightness and openness, enabling viewers to effortlessly engage with the artwork and unleash their imaginations. Her approach is not only inspiring but also educational, encouraging us to observe the world from new perspectives and to cherish the beauty inherent in every moment and being. (Luisa Ritoša)
