With the cycle of paintings under the working title Streaming, the Katarina Švabić’s focus is directed inwardly, toward a meditative void whose content, though abstract, is excitingly vibrant and changeable. The calligraphic strokes reflect the current energy supply, and the artistic exploration of the invisible logics and intelligence of motion, such as flow, vibration, pulsation, and the absence of motives and mental content (information) make this creative process enjoyable and relaxed.

Katarina Švabić was born in Belgrade in1975. She is an associate professor at Faculty of Visual Arts in Podgorica, Montenegro. (interdisciplinary visual art). She is also a member of The Association of Fine Artists of Montenegro. Lives and work in Podgorica, Montenegro
