Summary note
The painter Velimir Ilišević (*1965 in Sisak) has long since liberated himself from his great paragons Vincent van Gogh and Chaim Soutine and discovered his own, experience-laden pictorial language. Ilišević finds his motifs in his personal everyday life. He transforms these in a play with associations and gives space to what is difficult to communicate. His art invites viewers to advance into suggestive worlds of color and images by means of the impasto application of paint and fragmentary objects. The catalogue presents his multifaceted oeuvre for the first time in an extensive overview. Special attention is given to his most recent series of paintings, a monumental ensemble on Ferdinand Hodler, which allows for experiencing Ilišević's artistic practice in an exemplary way. The volume is supplemented by art-historical articles and a literary text by Miljenko Jergović as well as a photo essay by Goran Potkonjak. Exhibitons: Museum zu Allerheiligen, Schaffhausen, Germany (24.9.2016-12.2.2017).
