Text from the catalog – …Bogdan Vukoslavljević – The central theme of my artistic research and existence is related to involvement in the topic of ecology, and therefore it is my firm position and obligation as an artist to record this moment with my works and to contribute to the understanding of this problem.
A sculptor by vocation, Vukoslavljević has been engaged in discovering the beauty and possibilities of wood as a material for more than two decades. He lets the material speak, trying to extract from it hidden forms, but also answers to questions concerning general life challenges. He applies this respect for the material in his work with terracotta, creating the monumental vertical work Dobro Drvo, three and a half meters high, as a modern totem of humanity – that is, the message that only united with nature can we expect a brighter future for our descendants. The artist is preoccupied with the theme of life and its metamorphoses, with an accent on birth, and the titles of the works represent the key to their understanding and complement his thoughts when shaping the sculptures. These sculptures, in the sculptural process of addition and subtraction, form new semantic layers, summarizing the patterns of the life that is yet to come.
