With her captivating large scale paintings she masterfully depicts the realities of thought and emotion. Her work is very well regarded, she has exhibited extensively in solo and group shows worldwide."My painting is an invitation to communicate, and to make it real.

... To perceive the painting to the extreme limit, because it is impenetrable, inexplicable, because it is the only way for painting to represent an entity ... The inception of the picture is generated intuitively and unconsciously, I have never fled from the forms that were born in rational way, yet the paintings generated by internal feeling were always stronger and more powerful ...

Of course, while I am in the painting, the rational part is cut out, but it is, nevertheless, necessary for me to observe, when the inspirational tension is over, as an objective observer and to continue entering the picture only later ...

I do not deny the rational part and I consider it at least as susceptible as the wonderful feeling of non-existent time and space, while I am in the painting.

Pierre Soulaqes: „Painting is primarily a poetic experience. It is a metaphor; it does’t allow to be explained, it does’t even allow to begin with an explanation, because the sense contributed to the painting is created and dissolved on it. Because of that, the art provokes, disturbs and incites, as life itself“...........Tanja Babić
