About Me and my art

 

 

About my art
 
My intention is to depict the emotional state of the experience of the beautiful in my pictures. The experience of the beautiful has something magical, something you can feel, but what you can not grasp, something that makes you overwhelmed and dreaming, something that makes everything easy. It is the eternity of the universe that resonates in this overwhelming experience. For me it is: "to enjoy beauty is to enjoy eternity".


With my camera I search for traces of untouchedness, originality and innocence in nature. In my short videos (30 seconds to one minute), I try to capture moments that are banal, but convey in their core the conflation of finitude and eternity as an experience.

 


It is important to me to maintain the authenticity


In my video recordings, I have kept the authentic background noise of the recordings and worked without a tripod. In some videos you can therefore hear human voices and follow my breathing in the camera work. Thus, in my videos, a banal presence consisting of images and noises encounters the untouched eternity.

 


I have a late entry into art


I have been studying art all my life - but only totally private, just for me. When I retired in 2014, I decided to go through my works, sort them, and make them available to the public. I applied for the 2017 Leipzig Art Fair and was admitted. In 2018, I applied to various online galleries - especially in the US: a total of 11 galleries have exhibited a total of 30 of my works in their monthly exhibitions (February, March, June 2018). I got a total of 9 certificates (Honorable Mention, Special Merit and Special Recognition Awards). Since September 2018 I am an artist at Saatchi Art (https://www.saatchiart.com/MarijaOrlovic).




I work digitally because I think digital technology is a contemporary means of expression. It also makes it possible to feel experience and the creative as the "new seeing" in a unique symbiosis of being, is and will.

About me

 
I, Dr. Marija Orlovic, have two home countries: Croatia (where I was born in 1949) and Germany.

I came to Germany (Mainz) in 1973 with a scholarship from the German Academic Exchange Service. At the Johannes Gutenberg University I did my doctorate in 1977 with a linguistic work. I live in Wiesbaden since 1978 and have been a German citizen since 1984. In addition, I was a member of the parliament of the state capital Wiesbaden for twelve years.

It's beautiful to belong to two countries and to one great continent - Europe.

I have not forgotten my Croatian homeland - on the contrary. I personally looked after my parents who lived there. Furthermore, I helped wherever I could, when Croatia was attacked by Serbia. Among other things, I organized the largest supply of emergency technical goods for the cities of Dubrovnik and Zadar (mobile emergency generators in various sizes, trucks, mobile water treatment, tools, etc.). For this I got from the Croatian President the highest Croatian medal for foreigners.

In 2009 I founded  at the Stifterverband für deutschen Wissenschaft "Dr. Marija Orlovic Foundation for Medical Research ". The foundation annually sponsors projects from the "Orlovic-Nchwuchsfond innovative Kardiologie" with the participation of the German Society of Cardiology.
