Žarko Smiljanić Grafike

Rekli su…

,, Grafike Žarka Smiljanića jednostavno traže od nas i da ih oslušnemo i shvatimo nedodirljivu mirnoću kojom su sve natopljene, nagnaju nas da bar malo sanjamo, da pobegnemo u netaknuti svet tu iza i oko nas, svet koga smo se nesvesno odrekli.
prof. Slobodan Pejović
,, Through his fine graphic knitting, exceptional sensitivity and tonal shading, Zarko Smiljanic prints out parts of the landscapes… His stroke across the plate is sometimes meticulous, then vibrant, but still steady and accurate. Using the selected tone scale he evokes the poetic-lyrical ambience. Zarko Smiljanic possesses lavish sense for graphic art and specifically he digests the world and nature throughout. Combining various printmaking techniques, he achieves unique composition of subtle solutions and surreal atmospheric fairy-tale.

,, Kada sam pre dosta godina video prve grafike Žarka Smiljanića, osetio sam da prelazim u jedan drugi svet, svet prirode, spokojstva, svetla, senki, osame i tišine...
Svet naročite estetizovanosti, veoma različit od onoga u kojem provodimo većinu dana svog ovozemaljskog života...
Vasa Pavković
,, His graphic sheets are simplified and recognisable. That is a world of silence, emanating from the waving hills and fields of velvety softness, and beyond, a wide sky, grey or midnight blue lies. Seemingly, these are the simple scenes of nature, which consist of two, three wide surfaces, expertly selected and tightly composed in the entirety… Smiljanić has completely immersed himself into his poetic world, indifferent to evanescent, fashionable trends which are quickly fading in the art scene. These landscapes, inhabited by human figures are poetic visions of a distant and pure world, left to the infinite silence of time…
Prof. Emir Dragulj
,, Zarko Smiljanic’s prints simply ask us to listen them and to understand their untouchable tranquility that they have been soaked with, impel us to dream for a while, to escape into untouched world that is around us, the world that we’ve unconsciously abandoned.
Prof. Slobodan Pejovic
,, Žarko Smiljanić finim grafičkim tkanjem, izuzetnom senzibilnošću i tonskom iznijansiranošću otiskuje delove predela...Njegov potez nekad je minuciozan, drugi put vibrantan, ali uvek siguran i precizan. Korišćenjem odabrane tonske skale dočarava poetsko lirski štimung.
Žarko Smiljanić poseduje raskošno umeće grafičkog zanata i osobeno osećanje sveta i prirode. Kombinovanjem grafičkih tehnika duboke štampe, ostvaruje kompozicije jedinstvenih, istančanih rešenja i nadrealne atmosferske bajkovitosti.
Vanja Kraut
,, Lirska intimistička konteplativnost, obeležila je grafičke listove Žarka Smiljanića. Ničeg impulsivnog nema na njegovim grafikama, već samo suzdržane lirike i smirenog, sutonskog temperamenta. Sklad, prefinjenost i harmoničnost, idejne su odrednice koje su trajno obeležile grafički opus ovog grafičara... Ovog umetnika zanimaju onirijski, arhetipski predeli, izuzetno složenog registra svetlosti i senki. Na tim predelima raskošnim ili pustim, uhvaćenim u doba sutona ili praskozorja, on istražuje mističnu konstelaciju izmedju drveta i vremena. Magičnost i metafizičnost Smiljanićevih prizora jeste u neobičnoj lepoti razmera drveta, zemlje i neba, u njihovoj nedokučivosti, ali i božanskom dodiru.
Dragan Jovanović Danilov
,, There are no figural motifs, no people in Smiljanic’s prints...Only plants, objects, firmament or Pleiades (Seven Sisters star cluster) can be seen. It appears that there is no life at all, however, there is much life in his graphics, there are so many souls - only they have to be discovered there.
