5 x 5 Submission 23 - Tatjana Pavicevic

Tatjana Pavicevic

Tatjana Pavicevic was born and raised in Sarajevo, Bosnia, and emigrated to the United States in 1999. For the last eight years she has lived and worked in Seattle. She received a B.F.A. degree in painting and printmaking from Cornish College of The Arts in 2005.
The tumultuous past of her war torn mother country, the experience of displacement and move into an unknown and hopeful life, and the acclimation to different cultural surroundings have gratefully prompted her to always seek a deeper meaning and beauty in all that life is.
Tatjana’s work is of representational character with a choice of oil painting, printmaking, and drawing media. Her current pieces have a substantial focus on portraiture. Inspired by her subject, she renders the energy which ties her to it.

For me art is a process of self-analysis and analysis of human condition. By choosing art as a profession, I have given myself a responsibility to communicate things or phenomena that don’t have a simple definition, and yet are often present in the ordinary world.
Artist has an ability to feel the essence of things, reach beyond their surface, pull the content out, and make it visible for anyone. This ability makes art a necessity for me, the ultimate way of life.
I strive to visually define elements of pure existence and human connection to the world. Inspiration is endlessly driven from my surroundings, and it gives me no other choice but to react to it and create from it.
