My paintings present my personal aspiration to choose my own reality, and then to introduce it to others as, at first glance, harmless, maybe even a naive proposal to do the same.

GOOD MOMENTS are recording almost imperceptible, and again essentially glistening moments of some irrelevant days, moments in which we suddenly feel peace and consent with ourselfs and our surroundings. There are no epochal events, nothing that has the intention to revolutionarily change the borders and remain recorded in history (not even the personal one), on the contrary, these moments are just drops in the sea that together can get the strength powerful wave. Walk with my dog, breakfast with dear people, watching the ducklings in the park, good conversation, reading a book, being tired after a good work, tea and cookie at five…

I’m describing to the observer a certain event, attitude or thought, and everything with the intention to bring them to the conclusion that every day is a gift, and that we are those who will rejoice it or put it aside disinterested. (M. E.)

Ciklus slika DOBRI TRENUCI predstavlja, slično kao i ciklus DANI SVESNOSTI, moju ličnu težnju da sama izaberem svoju stvarnost, a zatim je kroz sliku predstavim drugima kao, na prvi pogled, bezazlen, pa čak i naivan predlog da učine to isto. DOBRI TRENUCI beleže skoro neprimetne, a opet suštinski blistave momente pojedinih nevažnih dana, momente u kojima iznenada osetimo mir i saglasje sa sobom i svojom okolinom. Nikakvi epohalni događaji nisu u pitanju, ništa što ima nameru da revolucionarno ruši granice i bude zabeleženo u istoriji (makar i samo onoj ličnoj), već su to samo kapi u moru koje zajedno mogu da dobiju snagu moćnog talasa. Šetnja sa svojim psom, doručak sa dragim osobama, posmatranje pačića u parku, dobar razgovor, čitanje knjige, čaj i kolačić u pet…

U likovnom smislu, oba ciklusa predstavljaju sublimaciju svega onoga što sam u slikarstvu do sada radila. Odnos prema boji, u hromatskom i u teksturnom smislu, ostao je isti, a teme koje su me do sada zanimale, prepliću se u zavisnosti od narativnog segmenta slike, što je zapravo jedini novi elemenat ovih radova. Prvi put posmatraču prepričavam određeni događaj, stav ili misao, a sve sa namerom da nakon proživljenog, zajedno sa mnom, dođe do zaključka da je svaki dan poklon, a da smo mi ti koji ćemo mu se radovati ili ga nezainteresovano odložiti u stranu.
