“Formation,”  ink spill drawings and ceramic vessels 

Jovanovic tells us her drawings allude to the confusing mixture of curiosity, fear, awe and mystery that surround the concepts of research and scientific progress. The drawings are at the same time enticing and repulsive; they are detailed and graceful, yet chaotic and unpredictable.  The recent drawings are closely related to the ceramic vessels from the artist’s early work that was inspired by the relationship between human technology and other natural technologies (seashells, beehives, anthills, spiderwebs, etc.)  With her more recent vessels, the artist states she is interested in providing a new entryway for the viewer – one in which the vessel is experienced as a metaphor for the human condition.
