Mirela Kulovic: “Lands”
Brookline Village Library, Second Floor: The Gallery in Hunneman Hall
November 21, 2017, through January 11, 2018
Opening Reception: Sunday, December 3, from 2-4 PM
“In this body of work, I went into the unconscious as deeply as possible. Applying many layers of oil paint, I lost myself in the process. Having concentrated on its smell, thickness, fluidity rather than my ideas and compositions, I was able to unlock deeper sensations and memories. As the process of painting unfolded, it resulted in mysterious, fragmented landscapes with portals, arches, and bridges.

You are invited to my opening reception Sunday, Dec. 3rd, from 2-4 p.m. in Hunneman Hall. These musicians from the Berklee College of Music will perform original music and covers of traditional Balkan tunes, jazz standards, and other popular tunes: : Miran Tikvicki, tamburitza; Alex Fansel, percussion; and Johnny Lopez, piano. Refreshments will be provided.” – Mirela Kulovic
