Dina Lenkovic' Painting

"The Birth of Day"
Oil on Canvas
19 3/4 in x 23 1/2 in

"The painting of Dina Lenkovic', in spite of its "mythological" cheerfulness and hedonism, is entering the twilight zone of human melancholy and loneliness. Her painting is about dreaming and awakening, about a stress which brings us back to our human conditions."
Josip Depolo

"The mythic dream realities of Dina Lenkovic produce a clear and sanguine melancholy in their concept of space and significance, without formal pretense or contradiction. Tempered with what one admirer terms a "frigid sensuality", her scenes define a distinct realm of surrealistic vision wherein the myth that gives birth to the dream and the dream which gives birth to the myth jocundly coexist."
