Joagoda Buic is now listed as a Croatian artist but in 1970 Seventies she participated for the former Republica of Iugoslavia at the Venezia Biennale. Her works can be compared to other artists like Pat Steir , but studying her works more closely is that their size in many cases differ.
Her works are oversized and abstract and the use of layers of Tissues makes them more like 3 Dimensional sculptural works. Flat against the wall or hanging from a ceiling their sculptural quality is always present. Recently i added the Venezia 1970 catalogue from the Jugoslavia contribution to my inventory. A nice and spectacular publications with 4 separate books in a cardboard sleeve. One on Buic and the other on Bernik and Dzamonja.
The Buic portrait is one of the most intriguing women protraits i have seen lately , A beautiful adult face with an artistic life ahead of her.
