Samira Kentrić: Cover Stories

How to draw a story in a single picture – and without words? 

Without words, but in a thematic tension with the title. In a thematic tension that is not merely a metaphorical comment or interpretation or counterpoint to the predictable horizon of expectations, but a high-voltage physical surge – before the brain realizes what the eyes are looking at, the body knows: it is seeing the invisible (its own). It is seeing the forbidden (its own). It’s looking at the rebellion, the freedom, the game. It’s looking at a story where the boundaries of the possible are extending. It is seeing a wild thought that is thought without words – in the image.
