“Aqueous Fluoreau” photography by Mark Mawson, using Phase One P30.
“Demersal” Suspended Color Fluid photography by Luka Klikovac, using a Nikon D700.
The collection of the latest photos of the young artist Luka Klikovac represents an exiting and creative play of colored fluids. Through his camera lens he reveals realistic and tangible space where wondrous motions of strange forms occur, thereby creating psychedelic effects. The author is fascinated with the diversity of surreal depths and spaces created by unpredictable laws of motion of colored fluids. His imagination, artistic sensibility and knowingly caused “randomness” in a glass of water, lead viewers to an endless adventure, full of surreal and timeless scenes. When experimenting with light Luka Klikovac creates an illusion of the polar illumination that springs out from hidden fountains. Various hints and implies occur in the eyes of the beholder - materialized visions of the distant galaxies, stardust and miraculous fluorescent life forms of the Jules Vernes’ ocean depths, as well as images of brightly colored organic elements.
The author allowed himself a little fun when letting disappear the reality of place and time, materialization and narrativity, and using none of digital photography visual effects. This series of images of Luka Klikovac promotes, so to speak, a specific field of abstract photos wherein he explores the possibilities of his creative expressions.
The author emphases that his vision and goal is to make people escape from the daily routine and points out that these images should be understood as Rorschach stains. -Branimir Karanović.
