Nevena Vuksanovic Vuksanovic Animal nature, complete but without identity, stands opposite the human inadequacy and susceptibility towards personal development. Animals I admire but I look at people critically. The humanlike beings point out the human deficiencies I myself possess while creating them. On our way of development and growth, we are, as people faced with personal shortcomings. These deficiencies may seem terrible, dreadful, insurmountable. Nature is what directs us towards out inner landscape, towards our ability to achieve completeness. To build a sculpture we need physical involvement, great immediacy. Forms mature upon their long being created in imagination. At the moment of personal separation from them, during the tension of my overall sensibility, I become one with the created object. My body is released from something that was up to then part of it. During its creation, the sculpture builds into itself memories, dreams, fears, aggression, a sense of helplessness.
