Description

Marko Jakše paints spaces of human imagination. Animals and strange crea- tures dominate over humans, existing species are joined by hermaphrodites and apparitions from fantasy islands, unknown expanses of the universe, or the future. Rich in oneiric undertones, Jakše’s art depicts paradoxical, antithetical entities relating to the symbols and relics of sunken civilisations, spirituality, religions, mythologies, and art heritage. His paintings challenge the idea of controlling nature and the related categories of existence, the scientific systems, and the knowledge of what is the primordial in and outside us; and above all, how something is. Jakše’s response to these questions covers a broad range from Nietzschean Dionysian abandon to metasymbolistic and metaromantic allegories reflecting the enthralling drama of human passions and yearning – mysterious games without a master.
