Milan VAGAC

WASSILY, I hate your pretty curves, View into the Instalation, Exhibition at SODA gallery, 2016

His current practice is focused on language of geometrical abstraction. I’m examining its possibilities through paintings, drawings or objects. My work is based on typical forms of the modernist avant-garde such as constructivism, neoplasticism, or functionalist movements in architecture and design. An important part of my work is thus the relation to the past defined by possibilities of our memory. A retrospection and constant verification of comebacks in art generate new opportunities for the future of painting. I used the original modernist ideas to define the shape and role of similar current approaches. A modernist grid is now replaced by virtual grid, which relativizes the primary exactness. Today’s utopia is fully digitized and reflects mankind living in an atomised world. To me, abstract painting represents a suitable form of projection of the nature of the modern world. The question of abstract painting lies in the setting of its system, in the structure of relations of visual means that determine its final form.
