ILLUSIONS, SCENE 1, TAKE 2
The painting depicts 4 people, 2 men and 2 women. Slightly older man and woman sit in the first plan, smoking and watching each other across the table. Behind them, in the second plan, are two other people, the woman jumped in the arms of the man, smiling. Men are in the blue t-shirts, woman in red. Background has plain surfaces of imaginary shadows in pink and purple.
The painting is a part of Illusions series of Biserka Petrovic. These paintings are developed like a storyboard, and in given order they form a narration, a story about human perception, according to the artist’s idea of perception as something defined by our previous experiences. The paintings show 4 characters and artist’s vision of their self-understanding after 2 decades; they talk about love and growing up, especially, and any kind of illusion. Biserka imagined the two men as the same one as young and as older, and the same for the two women. The observer is of course free to interpret it differently, especially thanks to the fact that the older and the younger characters are not the same persons. Paintings are developed first as a series of photographs made by the artist, and the figures in the paintings are the actors of Serbian Pulse Theatre, which the artist hired to act in the scenes.
