Vesna Maksimovic, Melbourne, Australia Member Since January 2009 Artist Statement My initial relationship with the Art of Design and Architecture is linked to my obsessive love of Painting. My love for art and painting has grown and intensified. I find that it is both a personal need and a passion, creating an outlet away from my architecture and taking a now more serious role in my life…' My favorite theme is Woman Personified – 'A Goddess' encapsulating her nature, her past and present and reflecting towards the future. The role is Symbolic of all women – the relationship between Woman and the Traditional roles, as nurturing soul mates and mothers, to modern Woman and their recognition in the modern world as individuals along with their personal and social achievements. ‘ I find this subject limitless and exhilarating, where I often stray towards a super natural representation of the subject of the woman - prtraying her power and ability as most supreme primordial being’.
