Bosiljka Raditsa’s abstract paintings have always considered the structure and color of the landscape in which she works. For the last hundred years, there has been little change in the method of farming at Ulivello. In this show her drawings record organic forms found in the ancient vineyards and olive groves while her gouaches cull the existing atmosphere of palpable memory. These diminutive works on paper are part of a larger mixed-media project in which Raditsa explores the myths and reality of this small corner of the world where the land mirrors the past and the question what is memory? Is continuously present. Raditsa has shown extensively in Rome, New York and Paris.
