Press Release

“The Creative Soul Gallery is hosting a group art show titled ‘Spiritual Defense’ exploring the power of Mitzvot and positive action, in the defense of Israel.

Opening reception is scheduled for Monday, September 8 at 8pm at the Creative Soul Gallery, 386 Kingston Ave, Brooklyn NY. The wine & Cheese reception is open to the public and sponsored by Natural & Kosher Cheese.

As the war raged on in Gaza this summer many Jews from around the world asked themselves ‘what can I do to help my brothers and sisters in the Land of Israel’. There was an outpouring of love and support from many with demonstrations, food drives for the IDF, donations and much more.

The idea behind the show is; In addition to the obvious need of the IDF to do its job keeping the people safe, what can we do to help?

We can clearly see the hand of G-D protecting His people. As we read from the Torah recently “…The eyes of G-D are on the Land of Israel, from the beginning of the year to the end of the year” (Deuteronomy 11:12) G-D protects the land of Israel, and the People of Israel.

The Torah states that the true protection of Jews everywhere and in the land of Israel, is a result of the fulfillment of the Mitzvot. “If you go in my statues…and I will grant peace in the Land, and you will sleep (peacefully) and no one will frighten you” (Leviticus 26;3-6)
It doesn’t matter how many Mitzvot one has done until now, or how one identifies Jewish-ly, each Mitzvah brings protection for the Jewish people in Israel and worldwide.
Our positive actions/Mitzvot  create spiritual defense for Israel!

The show is curated by Rabbi Yitzchok Moully for The Creative Soul and Elyssa Wortzman for the Jewish Art Salon. The show aims to engage the audience in a dialogue on the ways in which the Jewish community throughout the world can stand together with their brothers and sisters in Israel through the power of Mitzvot.

The show will feature work by Alyse Radenovic, Batya Kuncman, Bonnie Kozek, David Baruch Wolk, Dovid Orlansky, E. Rosen, Elyssa Wortzman, Hila Ben Itzhak, Leah Raab, LNM, Lynn Russell, Mushkie Silman, Natalia Kadish, Rivka Nehorai and Yitzchok Moully.

The show will be on display at the Creative Soul Gallery from September 8 – October 5. The gallery is open Sunday – Thursday, and 10:00am – 3:30pm”

Solo Exhibition at Matica Crnogorska Gallery Space

Alyse Radenovic painting exhibit opened tonight at Matica crnogorska, Herceg Novi branch.

See more images from the show at my facebook album here


The photography of life, like the flicker that catches us in a moment with all its strength, is for me, absolute art. One who takes such a flicker and converts it to the word, the picture, the sketch, or who desires to merge it with some other forces of artistic weaving, is a fortunate being. Entirely the opposite, exist absorbers, watchers of such states, who live to recognize, to complement themselves with these same flickers, which they lack. Thus we seek one another, and in essence, we live art.

Alyse Radenovic, with the opus “I pass this way, do you see me” hands over to us a part of her moving picture, in which she experiences landscape, antiquity, the worn church facade, the wild-grown flower: to be preserved forever. In real time, to make a recording of the environment as a satisfied consumer, and to make (justifiably) domination of the self – the work is demanding. Cathartic aspirations are the foundation of every attempt in the process of creation, of valid art. Radenovic, seemingly, looks relaxed – timeless – and essentially is “here and now”. The symbolism with she expresses herself is completely feminine, yet without filigreed arrogance. With freed movement she shapes a world she is emotionally experiencing… but again the world which she is repeating as a flicker. If we turn around with our creations, artistically and individually, we will realize that we draw, we paint, we sculpt, we create music, we dance or we write only about ourselves and for ourselves. And that is justification, without alibi, compromised, cruel and so vitally necessary. If we do not pass this lucid flux through the aura from which we are built …to us there is nothing of art. In regard to this, it is again worth saying, there are no talented, but rather only illuminated, personae …which there “only” have the heart to start searching her cut-off soul, for that ambivalent character and strength… which is here somewhere …visible …well invisible.

Radenovic, although a foreigner to our understanding of US Geography, stamps our landscape, with an almost eerie strength. As if she had been born several times, on these kartsts, rivers and seas, which we pay no attention to anymore. Certainly it has always been the rule, that all is far better seen from a distance. Her dimension measured by nautical miles brought us closer than was her intention (it seems).

Alyse is today in Arlington, in the state of Virginia, thus simply happy to give to us, and that we have enough of the flickers for her emotion in art.

Fotografisanje života, kao treptaj onog što nas na trenutak ulovi svom svojom silinom, za mene je apsolutna umjetnost. Onaj što umije takav treptaj prebaciti u riječ, sliku, crtež ili se želi stopiti s nekim drugim snagama umjetničkog tkanja, je sretno biće. Sasvim suprotno, postoje upijači, gledači takvih stanja, koji žive da prepoznaju, da se nadopune tim istim treptajem, što im nedostaje. Tako tragamo jedni za drugima, a u biti živimo umjetnost.

Alyse Rađenović, opusom „Prolazim ovuda, vidiš li me“ predaje nam djelić svoje pokretne slike, u kojoj doživljava pejzaž, starinu, otučenu crkvenu fasadu, samonikli cvijet, na čuvanje za uvijek. U realnom vremenu, činiti zapis okružja kao zadovoljni konzument, a baviti se (sasvim opravdano) dominatom sebe, zahtjevna je rabota. Katarzička sremljenja su osnov svakog pokušaja u procesu stvaranja, validne umjetnosti. Rađenović, naizgled, djeluje opušteno, bezvremenski, a suštinski je „ovdje i sada“. Simbolika kojom se izražava je sasvim damska, ali bez filigranske nadmenosti. Ona slobodnim pokretom oblikuje svijet kojeg u sebi emotivno doživljava…ali i ponavlja kao treptaj. Okrenemo li se oko svojih uradaka, umjetnički i pojedinačno, shvatićemo da crtamo, slikamo, vajamo, muziciramo, plešemo ili pišemo samo o sebi ili za sebe. I to je opravdanje, bez alibija. Kompromisno, surovo i tako neophodno potrebno. Ukoliko ne provučemo taj lucidni fluks, kroz auru od koje smo sazdani…nema nam ništa od umjetnosti. S tim u vezi, opet valja reći, da nema talentovanih, već samo osvijetljenih persona…koji eto „samo“ imaju herca da otpočnu potragu za svojom otkinutom dušom, za onim podvojenim likom i snagom…koja je tu negdje…vidljiva…pa nevidljiva.

Rađenović, iako strankinja za naše poimanje USA geografije, pečatira naš krajolik, gotovo začudnom snagom. Kao da se rađala nekoliko puta, na ovim kršima, rijekama i morima, na koje mi sami, više ne obraćamo pažnju. Svakako da je oduvjek vrijedilo pravilo, da se sve mnogo bolje vidi iz daljine. Ona je svoju dimenziju mjerenu nautičkim miljama približila više nama, nego što joj je to bila namjera (čini se).

Alyse je danas u Arlingtonu u državi Virginia, tako jednostavno sretna što nam se poklonila, i što smo imali dovoljno treptaja za njenu emociju u umjetnosti.

Naziv: Izložba: Alyse Rađenović
Gdje: Internet Club – Travnik
Kategorija: Izložbe

Opis događaja:

O slikama Alyse Rađenović

Najvažniji zadatak svakog djela je ostvarenje vizuelne ravnoteže. Stil koji Alyse koristi slobodno možemo odrediti kao organski i veoma dinamičan, i istovremeno kao stil koji se može pohvaliti savršenom ravnotežom boje, ritma, rečenog i ponuđenog na razmišljanje svakom posmatraču, ma koliko njegovo iskustvo u likovnoj umjetnosti bilo.

Ova mlada slikarica u svojim djelima istražuje repeticije i varijacije odnosa između elemenata.

Težište slika se u određenom smislu može razumjeti kao „neviđen“ predmet na koji se aludira oslikanim dijelovima. Najizražajniji dio rada je onaj o vezama između elemenata i o sadržaju koji daju jedan drugome. Ova djela se bave pitanjima intelektualnog i emotivnog procesa percepcije i odlučivanja o suštinskom u stvarnim i simbolizovanim predmetima, i o tome kako se ove stvari razumiju i odrede u procesu razmišljanja.

Web sajt Alyse Rađenović:

O Alyse

Internet prijateljstvo nekolicine članova Alter Art-a sa Alyse Rađenović započelo je gotovo slučajno. Jedna od obavijesti koje vam preporučuju ljude koje biste možda mogli poznavati ili s njima dijeliti interesovanja, nekom je, sad se više i ne sjećam kome, ponudio opciju „add to friends“.

Malo nakon toga Alyse je besplatno dizajnirala plakat za „Nadu iz ormara“, diplomsku predstavu Baneta Đakovića. I, ne zato što nije tražila novac, već zato što je na osnovu nekoliko poruka „pogodila“ u srž predstave na kojoj smo radili, ponosno smo njen uradak (istina ponešto „oštećen“ očajnom štampom, no, to je već neka druga priča) predstavili publici kao zvaničan plakat predstave.

Danas se ta slika nalazi u izložbenoj postavci ove nesvakidašnje umjetnice, među ostalim slikama koje je, o vlastitom trošku, poslala u Travnik iz Njujorka i time na još jedan način pokazala koliko su fizičke razdaljine među umjetnicima i uopće ljudima koji vole umjetnost, zapravo nebitna stvar.

Dok su slike polako pristizale u travničku poštu, mi smo sve pažljivije razgledali njene foto albume, i, iz dana u dan, osjećali sve veće uzbuđenje zbog mogućeg susreta sa ovom Amerikankom ex-yu porijekla. Jer, osim što je slikar, ona je supruga, majka, dama koja je životni prostor svoje obitelji (barem koliko fotografije pokazuju) pretvorila u malo bajkovito utočište za emotivne, senzibilne ljude. Baš onakvo kakvo je, vjerujemo, i vama koji ste u čitanju ovog teksta stigli do ovih redaka, prijeko potrebno u svijetu u kom živimo, a koji najčešće i, na žalost najpreciznije, opisujemo riječima koje su svojevrsna uvreda za ljudski rod.

Baš zato što ni jednom porukom (ni onom kratkom elektronskom, ni onom koju nam šalje svojom umjetnošću), nikad nije ni podsjetila na surovi, bezosjećajni planet na kom se, eto, rodila i zatekla, Alyse Rađenović zaslužila je mnogo više pažnje no što je jedno brzinsko „pregledanje“ njenih slika. Neka lagana muzika, prepuštanje mašti i tek poneka riječ razmijenjena sa osobom koja se zatekla pored vas (a koju ćete vjerovatno drugačije doživjeti u predloženoj situaciji, ma o kome da se radi), budu sjajan početak šetnje, ili, bolje rečeno, plovidbe kroz magična prostranstva duha Alyse Rađenović.
