Dusa Jesih, a glittering colourful soul - literally delicate colourful alluviumWith Dusa Jesih, a young artist from Ljubljana, we are entering into a universe of structural abstraction, and more colourful: where in some strange way Malevic's and Jasper Johns reminiscence crosses, not knowing whether or not one or another have influenced her art.Dusa's art, with its blackness and whiteness, which reminds us of different variations of night and day, with numerous soft bluish, pearly or vague reflections, is primarily poetic. Colours in balanced compositions gracefully stand opposite: pale violet, green, viny or yellow tonality mix and fall into stripes, painted in a geometric harmony. It's about the art which gives a free playground to stunning harmony and where the view is lost in some kind of infinity that leads towards detailed examination.The observer who has been following her paintings for a long time feels in some unusual way observed. It is like the paintings are giving back their own questions which are accumulated by persistant observations. In each of her works there are more paintings, where the author composes them in shape of destructiveness which confuses us, because what we see is not what we assume to see. It seems that the artist cherishes a special love towards secrets, which radiates through her paintbrush.Adrian Darmon, critic, Paris 2007My name is Dusa (which in translation refers to soul) and incidentally I connect a large portion of my existence to the meaning of soul. To me soul is important, is inconceivable, weightless, cannot die, doesn't crease or mould, and doesnt get moth-eaten - at least not by those real ones. Soul I believe belongs to unearthly extensions; as caretaker of my own soul I try to get well along with it. Sometimes I even prey for it - and I wish it a heavenly happiness in haven'. I often think to myself: 'I'd sell my soul to be able to express all I think that I think, all that I feel all my moods so that I can get to the heart of the soul and - paint it. But of course, my soul is priceless, is not for sale, does not change according to daily changes of currency value and can not be the matter of stock exchange. Soul is my name and soul is me Dusha. I repeat the well known mantra - about a rainbowy mixture of - foolishness and pain, I agree with it and I sign it up as Dus(sh)a J(Y)esih. Dusa Jesih, painter, Ljubljana, may 2006, Slovenia, Europe
