The stone, that surrounds us since the formation of the world, carries all the secrets of this world, but for men, it is hard … and stingy with words. Radovan Ždrale, writer and sculptor from Novi Sad, reveals petrified messages from eternity by using the visual language. Before the emergence of diamond tools, semiprecious stone could only be shaped by nature. Ždrale now gives us the grail stone of Creator’s art.
The specificity of my sculptural work has two aspects: a new quest for the beginnings of the first Neolithic artistic inspirations, from which the overall sculpture and painting emerged, what could be called a repeated search for the originals and re-passing the paths by which the ancient Neolithic came to our time. In a large number of modern sculptures – all are made of stone – there are other motifs and sculptural procedures, such as the attempt of reducing the full visual content to two dimensions.
The stone, used for making most sculptures, belongs to a group of aesthetically highly effective minerals, often so-called semiprecious stones, which often give the sculptures the extraordinary appeal of the effects that the stone hides in itself.
