Ana Vrtačnik lives and works in Novi Sad. She studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Novi Sad and she is currently doing a Ph.D. on the subject of visual arts and bio-mimetic formations. The artist’s major medium are sculptural hanging paintings constructed with organic materials. The surface of the works recalls the feel of tactile surfaces of various zoological and botanical species presented with an overly represented off-white colour. She works mainly with thread, which opened a world of its own for the artist. As the artist says, she learned the language of thread and so creation itself is a process of thinking where the material becomes the thought to be thought. The “Serpent” was inspired by biomorphic and zoomorphic forms which can be found in nature. The work itself is evocative and tactile, at the same time expressive and minimal, beautiful in its simplicity, yet full of emotion. „Serpent “ is a work of art that exists as a living organism that breathes and changes over time as the woolen threads are inevitably arranged differently each time, which revives the work with each re-exhibition. This element of subtle change makes this work look more alive and natural. The contrast of the two materials - wool and tin - is emphasized in order to achieve a more dynamic contrast between warm and cold, soft and hard, matte and shiny.
