Title: Without a Master
Commissioner: Aleš Vaupotič
Curator: Robert Simonišek
Exhibitors: Marko Jakše
Marko Jakše is representing Slovenia at the 59th Venice Biennale. “Without a Master” comprises canvases from the artist’s various periods. Marko Jakše is one of the few artists who nowadays dedicates his intense energy exclusively to the medium of painting. For more than three decades the painter created a mysterious artistic universe, intertwining the oneiric and the real, the lyrical and the narrative, and the archaic and the modern. His canvases depict paradoxical, antithetical entities relating to the symbols and relics of sunken civilizations, spirituality, religions, mythologies, and artistic heritage. The painter’s visions unveil an anti-world of mysteries, curiosities, and miracles set in archetypal landscapes and timeless architecture.
