Jelena Savic

Introducing Jelena

Jelena is currently a PhD student of Interdisciplinary Studies at the University of Arts in Belgrade. She received her Masters degree from the Faculty of Applied Arts in Belgrade at the Department of the Printmaking and her Bachelors degree at Faculty of Philology and Arts in Kragujevac, majoring in graphic design. She has participated in many group exhibitions nationally and abroad and has also had three solo exhibitions in Serbia.

What we love about Jelena

What’s not been etched or lifted in the printmaking process might be more important than what’s left behind for us to see. It’s in these voids that Jelena hopes her audiences place themselves and their own remembrances. Theses selected works are primarily linocuts, but it’s the sugar lifting technique which forces the viewer to project a personal familiarity to her own reflections. The rounded print edges as seen in “Nest” and “Home” and the muted hues frame the images as television screens from yesteryear.
