Ivana’s paintings are characterised by exploring the interiors submerged underwater in a unique blend of realism, fantasy and montage. Executed with great finesse, the viewer feels enveloped by these spaces populated by a single presence of a swimmer exploring the inner world of emotions. In the life of every individual and in all areas of social life emotions have an enormous significance. To understand them means not only to know better yourselves, but also to better understand another person as well.
