Contemporary artist Gordana Ristic creates raw and new worlds in her paintings, in which the previously known is turned upside down. Her work is focused on female icons from fairy tales and pop culture, who turn the tables and free themselves from social constraints. Their world is suddenly topsy turvy, and the heroines are characterized by activism, brutality and the urge for freedom. Social issues as conventions, consumption, sexuality, ideals of beauty etc. are called into question by their exaggerated inversion and disturbing imagery. Inspite of the grotesque and bloody content, her paintings are bursting with vividness and are communicating a life-affirming attitude. Gordana Ristic studied at the Technical Artschool in Hamburg and received her diploma in Graphic Design. 2014 she has started to share and exhibit her work and has been part of various group shows since then. Aside from her work as contemporary artist, she is also working as matte painter and concept artist for the movie and advertisement industry since 2010. She currently lives and works in Berlin, Germany.
