“Ivekovic’s earliest pieces used fashion magazines, ads and personal photographs to dissect the particular role the media and consumerism play in subjugating and manipulating women. This was in the seventies and she was responding to life under a dictatorship in Yugoslavia. She is a crucial figure in post-war Eastern art, yet remains still relatively unknown. I find her fascinating…”

Art by Sanja Ivekovic from the “Sweet Violence” series, 1970s.

“I’ve been completely obsessed with the artist for many years and just adore this painting. With closed eyes, Balthus’s pubescent and provocative model is lost in thought and seems completely at home in her youth. Thérèse Blanchard, was about twelve or thirteen at the time this picture was made. I love the mysterious suspense and secretive dimension that permeate the work.”

“Thérèse Dreaming” by artist Balthus, 1938. Found here.

“It is entitled “Self Portrait” and was taken in 1977. I love the duality of the work with the bad boy implication contrasting with the simple elegance of the image. I like that the hand is writing the word “pictures”, a contradictory composition if we look at it in the age of the selfie!”

“Self Potrait” by Robert Mapplethorpe, 1977. Found here.
