Rules of Paradiso Art Colony

Agreement 

Question form

Like many similar meetings in Croatia and Europe, participants in these art workshops create through socialization, outside studios, free in space. Drawn by those impulses that awakens the Mediterranean climate of the island Rab, inventing a visual expression of their artistic perception of the world. A Rab landscape is a challenge for everyone. Its incidence offers creative imagination of artists, especially those who know how to open a charge of hot light, colors, and experience the seaside. Color, line, rhythm, composition, light – in that we distinguish, we feel, we accept artists and their works. These visual elements lead us into their inner spaces and expanses of fine art. They allow us to recognize in contemporary art moment in which art is no longer just an illusion, but an idea. No matter how many drew from modernism and postmodernism 20th century, in search of pure visual laws to redistribute how many possibilities of expression in the abstract and figurative art, opened many avenues for theory and practice. The Rab colony facing the visual adventure and repeatable incurred a work of art. Choose their own theme and style statement. Together they create, those who have long been on the art scene, recognized and established, and those with faith and hard work to be recognized. The final record of doing so can be associative or abstract, art techniques and stylistic attributes are chosen according to appearances and preferences, the results and interpretation are often measured and confirmed by the blue sea and sky. So the forms and things and relations of order in a given area showing the hour as they are, sometimes they could or should be.

Art Colony Paradiso year after year enriches the tourist and cultural offer of Rab and achieves significant visual clue. This is obliged to occasionally display, presentation of works and authors to the public, to create exhibitions with identity to engage with the presentation and promotion.
