2017.

august, 2017.
This summer again, Goran Gizdavčić exhibits in the baroque Church of the Holy Spirit in Omiš. This year's exhibition under the title '' Softly, Oh, Softly Speaks the Autumn to Me '' presents his reflections on the everchanging seasons, transience, aging, beauty and the meaning of love, value of the present moment and emphasizes his dedication to record the inexhaustible and unmistakable beauty of the nature. The opening of the exhibition is on Thursday, August 24, at 9 pm and it is planned to last until September 21,2017. It can be visited every day from 11.30 am to 1 pm and from 8 pm to 10.30 pm.


In these photos, the autumn overflows dionysiously in its post ecstatic peace and quiet : in the fruits of harmony, balance and gentleness, in the scene of fragile branches reflecting gently blue in the water – sky; in the silent, varied playfulness of the leaves on the water; in the blue-green-yellow reflections of vegetation and trees in the water-river that as if stopping for a moment in the unity – encounter of heaven and earth to make us join this eternal stage-theatre in the play of transcedence. Even the deafening noise of the waterfall fully extincts and draws us into the silence of the heart….a leaf on a road whispers to us … and a path leads us further … to the primeval world in the gentle, vivid green embrace of the moss and red forest mushrooms. A lamp made of leaves glows there and the peace in the old oak tree crown embraces us, mild drops of rain wash us and the prayer transforms us …..

(Etel Gizdavčić Jurić)
