Natasha Zupan’s work juxtaposes emotion, reflection, shadows, light, time, images and abstractions in a confrontation between traditional representation and contemporary subjectivities. She manipulates and interweaves concepts of time. Time, past and future are united in a perpetual possibility of change. Her work captures the resonances, and the echoes and reflection of conflict and evolution. Zupan’s work is not about translating a world that already exists. It is about an entrance to a different universe. Her work is about a universe where time and emotions intersect. She grew up in Europe and in the US, so have a dual perspective with regards to tradition in painting and aesthetics. Her work is about duality and cross-cultural exposure. The method, which predominates her work, is the collage. It is not only the use of different materials, but also of different representational techniques. By decontextualizing the language of representation, i.e. drawing, painting, color theory, and perspective etc., She reformulate to create a new space. Her work is about this process of blurring boundaries and the dialectic between experimentation and tradition. She combines images from old masters, alchemical prints, contemporary artists, and bits from magazines and newspapers to create overlapping, intersecting worlds of transparencies and transformation. Collage allows emotions to converge with the material. She play with the juxtaposition of the past and present in an atmosphere of no time. Her seek baroque minimalism. The materials she use consist of embroidered silks dating back from the 18th century coded with time and meaning. She uses gold leaf, pigments, rabbit skin glue, acrylic, oil, charcoal, photographs, encyclopedias, magazines and current images from the Internet. The work is informed by romance, desire, disillusion, torment, ecstasy, dream and myth. Her best works are erotic displays of mental confusion particularly concerning relationships. She usually work in series to emphasize repetition, and obsession.
