Between Dreams and Reality
Iva Lulić’s photography is magical, and the protagonists are real. The spaces and the landscapes are existing and they belong to the real world. The celestial vault, the sun sets, the shadows, and the effects are natural without the use of computer technology. The script, and the direction, of Iva Lulić, underlined the beauty of the concrete landscape. The drama is real, accentuated by the light and story which is located in its natural environment, in a pure idyll of inanimate nature in which actors enjoy their own roles that emphasize their inner mental states.
The author searches for her expression in the digital photography she uses as a painting medium, performing the painting composition in the spirit of the Western Art of Romanticism and Symbolism of the 19th Century. The idea and the realization are based on the synthesis of magic, symbolism, and spiritualism.
