Repose / Pribranost

" A play may be violent, full of motion: yet it has that special kind of repose which allows contemplation and produces the climate in which tragic importance is a possible thing, provided that certain modern conditions are met. In actual existence the moments of love are succeeded by the moment of safety and sleep. The sincere remark is followed by a cynic distrust. Truth is fragmentary, at best: we love and betray each other not in quite the same breath but in two breaths that occur in fairly close sequence."
                                      The Timeless World of a Play, Tennessee Williams

"Drama može biti nasilna, u stalnom kretanju, no  ipak ima onu posebno vrstu pribranosti koja omogućava promišljanje i stvara klimu u kojoj je tragična važnost mogućnost, ukoliko se izađe u susret nekim modernim uvjetima. U stvarnosti, trenutci ljubavi se nastavljaju na trenutke sigurnosti i sna. Iskrena izjava bude praćena ciničnim nepovjerenjem. Istina je, u najboljem slučaju, isprekidana: volimo i izdajemo jedno drugo ne baš u istom dahu, ali u dva daha koji se događaju u jako bliskom slijedu."
 Bezvremenski svijet drame, Tennesse Williams 


I can't get these lines out of my head. This has got to be one of the most profound things ever written about art. Are we wrong to reserve the tragic importance only for plays (i.e. art)? Is life really such a struggle that it doesn't mix well with art? Art is the very best in us. Why is it then so hard to reach? Why must an artist always pay the price? Why is creating art so paintful? Even experiencing art is a mixture of paint of pleasure. Why is art so different than life? It is as dynamic as life and often just as violent, but it is different, it is of a higher quality than the life itself...that is why it must needs certain conditions, that is why it takes a lot from us.

Ne mogu si izbiti ove redove iz glave. Ovo mora biti jedna od najdubljih stvari ikad napisanih o umjetnosti.  Jesmo li u krivu što važnost tragičnoga čuvamo samo za drame (to jest umjetnost)? Je li život doista takva borba da se ne miješa dobro sa umjetnošću. Umjetnost je ono najbolje u nama. Zašto ju je onda tako teško dostići? Zašto umjetnik uvijek plaća cijenu? Zašto je stvaranje umjetnosti tako bolno? Čak i njen doživljaj je mješavina boli i užitka. Zašto je umjetnost tako drukčija od života? Jednako je dinamička kao život, a često i jednako nasilna, ali je drukčija, neke je više kvalitete nego sam život...zato mora susresti određene uvijete, zato toliko oduzima od nas.

  11. Dobro pitanje. Većina ustvari ni ne razmišlja o takvim stvarima pa je umetnost nešto što leži samo pojedincima. Ipak je to neki viši nivo svesti...
    Još jednom si pomešala dezene i u tome ti nema ravne :) Sve je divno i taj kaput je tako nekako moćan ;)

    1. nekako mi je baš žao kad vidim koliko rada umjetnici ulože vremena u svoja djela jer tu pribranost koja je potrebna da se postigne umjetnost nije lako postići, pa onda još cijeli život u neizvjesnosti ( Tennesse Williams je jedno cijelo ljeto živio na riži i dva manga), a na kraju je uvijek neka hajka na umjetnike kao na neradnike. Oni su nekad mi se čini i najveći radnici, jer je to (pa bilo pisanje, fotografija ili što god) i intelektualni i duhovni rad.

  26. That quote is so moving, especially I like the part about the love and betray :) You're right - life isn't the same as art, sometimes art is more painful. What about your outfit, your coat has beautiful color which suits to you and your natural beauty, Ivana, you should wear it more often :) Hope you had successful day, my dear ;)

February recap / sažetak veljače

You have seen (more or less) what was February like for me. Now tell me... what was February like for you? Are you happy that it's already March or do you feel like time is flying too fast?Are you looking forward to the spring?

 As far as blogging goes, it seems that I have became more focused on fashion illustrations. In the next month the illustrations will have their place, but there will be more focus on DIY....or at least I think so, because I'm kind of heading in that direction. Apart from that, I have no plans. I have so many ideas when it comes to what I want to blog about, that I often have hard time deciding what not to include. As always, feel free to write about what you would like to see.

Vidjeli ste (više-manje) kako sam provela veljaču...sada mi recite, kakav je vama bio prošli mjesec? Veselite li se proljeću? Jeste li jedva dočekali ožujak ili vam je vrijeme prebrzo proletjelo? Ne zaboravite da nam možda i nije još stiglo i da ime za mjesec ožujak potječe od st…

Wearing the First Dress I Ever Made: A Grey Midi Dress

Here it is: the first dress I have ever made entirely by myself. I did make some summer dresses in the past, but I had sown them without a pattern and a sewing machine and at any rate I wouldn't call them very accomplished. I mean, they weren't nearly as polished as this dress and they were not nearly as complex to make. I'm very happy with how this dress turned out. I'm even happier I took this sewing course in the first place because now I can make more dresses like this one! If you remember my November highlights post, you might remember that I've mentioned how I've recently finished a beginning fashion tailoring and sewing course with designer Stanka Zovko. 

I promised to show you the dress I made for my course 'graduation'. At the end of this lovely sewing course, you get to choose not only what you're going to make, but also the material and the pattern.  The sewing pattern is typically chosen from one of the sewing magazines this designer has …

How To Style Animal Print? + An Autumnal Fairy Tale at Ethno Village Near Medugorje

With winter at our doorstep, I think it's important to make the most out of the left over autumn days. With that in mind, my husband and I payed another visit to our favourite (still not officially opened!) ethno village in vicinity of Medugorje. I wrote about this eco/ethno village a number of times, so if you want to know more (or just see more photographs) feel free to check out my old posts herehereherehere and here.  Autumn is Herzegovina is always gorgeous, and this year hasn't been an exception. We had some sudden weather changes and drastic changes of temperature, but I would still describe this autumn as a beautiful one. The Sunday this photographs were taken on was rather gorgeous, so I'm certainly glad we went on this little trip. I know I'm repeating myself, but I do cherish moments like this. Every time I step into this little village, I feel as if the time has stopped or rather like I have just travelled in time. It's such a charming place! I h…
