Aroz zorica tasic (b. 1946, Vranjska Banja; Serbia)
Everything began, so it seems, in my early childhood while I was racing my younger brother in an attempt to catch the Sun beyond the mountain peaks of Vranjska Banja and bring it to the holt.The innocent children's play has traced the line of all my prospective journeys: the linear, whirling, soaring, plunging and sinking ones. It has left an ember burning deep inside me that makes me defy and push the boundaries of desires and of possibility.
Along with the need to bend and thus transcend the inexorable constants of space, of time and of human senses there goes on a fierce battle to keep and conserve the invaluable primeval balance in nature, to maintain harmonious relationship of man with heaven and earth.
Consciously, unconsciously and who knows how else, dreams, symbols and archetypes have become my signposts, the obligatory threads tying all of my journeys to a single goal. Their visible marks stay on as sole witnesses of that inner struggle.
