Atelier Home Gallery è lieta di presentare al pubblico la prima mostra della stagione espositiva 2016/17 in data 17 settembre 2016: Plastic Divas, personale della pittrice croata Toni Mazuranic a cura di Matilde Tiriticco. Le 14 opere vengono esposte per la prima volta in Italia grazie al supporto e al patrocinio del Consolato Generale della Repubblica di Croazia a Trieste che, nella persona del console Nataša Degiuli Kos, p e de à pa te all’e e to i augu ale testimoniando una spiccata sensibilità per la promozione e diffusio e dell’operato dei giova i artisti croati co te pora ei. Il titolo Plastic Divas s elto dalla u at i e i te de sottoli ea e l’uso iti o he l’a tista fa della ellezza più li pida, a spesso o otta dalle p ati he i t usi e di ito hi e adatta e ti, he oggigio o impera nella comunicazione e trasmissione degli standard estetici. Attraverso il suo lavoro, infatti, Toni Mazuranic affronta una serie di temi legati all'influenza dei Media sulle donne e sugli odierni parametri di bellezza condivisi dalla società occidentale, ponendo sempre una domanda finale allo spettatore. Prendendo le immagini direttamente dal mondo che vuole analizzare - donne e riviste di moda -, Mazuranic altera e ricombina il contenuto attraverso collages preparatori che vengono poi trasformati in dipinti. Con il suo intervento e la nuova composizione di queste immagini, le tematiche che vengono esse i dis ussio e so o l’ ide tità, la p ati a della hi u gia plasti a e l’i flue za he ueste i agi i perfette hanno oggi sulle giovani donne. Nella serie "Cover [LA] Girls" Mazuranic si concentra sul concetto di "covergirl”, termine diventato popolare e ampiamente accettato, rielaborandone le copertine per mettere in discussione l’ide tità delle figure ritratte o talvolta la semplice mancanza dell’ide tità stessa. In questa serie l’a tista si concentra in particolare sulla rivista Cosmpolitan per scoprire quale sia la formula adottata dalla rivista per creare una copertina perfetta: per realizzare ciò utilizza spesso materiali riflettenti, come brillantini o vinile, in cui lo spettatore può in alcune opere vedere sé stesso riflesso, spingendolo a mettere in discussione la sua relazione con questo tipo di immagini. Nel suo più recente corpus delle grandi tele, Toni Mazuranic si allontana dal concetto di "covergirl", anche se continua ad attingere a piene mani dalla cultura visiva delle riviste patinate. La tecnica utilizzata o ti ua a o p e de e l’utilizzo del ollage ei ozzetti, i ui o po enti consistono in piccole parti di volti differenti che sembrano costituire un unicum armonico. Attraverso questo processo di tranciatura, invece, si crea una tensione nei dipinti, qualcosa di attraente, ma tuttavia ripugnante, grottesco, spaventoso e bellissimo.

Atelier Home Gallery is pleased to present to the public the first show of the exhibition season 2016/17 Plastic Divas, solo show by the Croatian painter Toni Mazuranic curated by Matilde Tiriticco. For the first time, the 14 artworks are shown in Italy thanks to support and patronage of the General Consulate of the Republic of Croatia in Trieste that, within the presence of Consul Nataša Degiuli Kos, will take part to the event proving a marked sensivity in promoting and sp eadi g the a a e ess of ou g o te po a C oatia a tists’ p odu tio . The title Plastic Divas chosen by the curator underlines the critical use made by the artist of portraying perfect beauty, often unnatural, that nowadays prevails in the aesthetic standard promoted by communication. Through her work Toni Mazuranic addresses a variety of themes related to the influence of popular media on women and contemporary beauty standards of Western society. In the work she explores, questions and critiques these standards posing a question for the viewer. She takes imagery directly from the world she is currently focused on - women's and fashion magazines - altering the content through collage which is then turned into a painting. With her intervention or reconstruction of these images she brings to question issues of identity, plastic surgery, and the power of these standardizes images and their affect on women today. In her series Cover[THE]Girls the artist fo uses on the notion of a overgirl as presented y women's magazines. This term has become popular and widely accepted – we all see ourselves in this o e gi l - but by pla i g asks o these o e gi ls Mazu a i i gs to uestio thei identity, or lack thereof. In this series Mazuranic focuses on Cosmopolitan magazine – using their covers as a source for her paintings – discovering their formula to create the perfect cover. She then often uses reflective materials, such as glitter or reflective vinyl, where the viewer can in some works see his or her own reflection. This urges the viewer to question their relationship to this type of imagery. In her newest body of work Mazu a i o es a a f o the o ept of a o e gi l , though still using magazines as her source. Slicing up different parts from different models she creates portraits that are seemingly one whole. Through this process of slicing she creates a tension in the paintings – something that is attractive, but yet repulsive or grotesque at the same time.
