Slivije Arc Popovič
The sculptor, graphic artist, and painter Silvije Arc Popovič began his artistic career in the 1970s with his signature collages and sculptural paintings. The method he uses to create his works follows one of the numerous fundamental principles of modernism, because in essence he remains oriented toward the spatial effect and the process of his architecture-inspired perception. Silvije Arc Popovič continually proceeds from the drawing and his priority is to think about matter and reality as they really are. Therefore, every material is valuable to him, including industrially manufactured products, items, objects, or merely parts thereof that he intentionally searches for or discovers at random. In addition to selecting the right materials, the process of thinking about art theory issues as well as the status, interactions, and constant change in art, nature, and society is also important to him.
