Title:
Treasure Island, MULTIVERSE

Author:
Nina Sumarac Jablonsky

Description:
Work Treasure island is part of collection MULTIVERSE or (Take) All Of Me Reshuffling of collective memory. Physical cosmology. The snapshots of our fluid reality. "The multiverse (or meta-universe) is the hypothetical set of possible universes, including the universe in which we live. Together, these universes comprise everything that exists: the entirety of space, time, matter, energy, and the physical laws and constants that describe them. The various universes within the multiverse are called "parallel universes", "other universes" or "alternative universes". 'The meeting of two personalities is like the contact of two chemical substances: if there is any reaction, both are transformed.' Carl Yung digital graphics, drawings, ink and oil paintings. open discussion "Painting “Treasure Island” is a visual choreography of sprawling eras, cultural smelting, sociological amalgamation (or lack thereof), political indignation, tragedies, parodies and especially ‘racial’ blending. The imagery is an anthropologis ’s delight; leaping off the canvas with interplays, innuendo and insight. History, herstory or ourstory are all pseudo affirmations of events and the fragmented significance ‘given’ to each story or version. They are not pseudo in the sense of lies but in the sense of deception or better yet cover-ups. Nina in her latest ‘recreation’ is undressing history by dressing it in the foliage of so many smooth or awkward representations. Each part of the collage suggests a moment, story or era from the uninhibited sexuality of ancient times, through the march of conquerors and cultural tides, up to the present newly arrived presences. The artist re-creates a meta-narrative that sheds the meaningless artifice of pseudo-truth and offers a coat of so many colors or stories which is initially over-whelming, almost nonsensical. This discomfort is even more pronounced if one associates history with identity (as if we are the simple sum of our past). The linear, melodramatic story of who, what, when and why is lost to a ‘naked’ chaos of fragmented stories, each one a leaf from another forest of stories. It is only when we surrender the search for a specific or familiar identity that we can intuit the sublime beauty and subtle complexity of our poly-story. Identity just like history, Nina’s work suggests, is an organic fiasco not only because it won’t conform to fashion but because it dreams of a fashion-free fashion. ” Costa Constantinides ,MSc Counseling Psychology & BA political science
