Dusa Jesih, a glittering colourful soul (literally delicate colourful alluvium)
With 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's  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, Paris 2007
