We recognize the paintings of Zorica Pavićević by their urban contents, academic perspective hidden in rich coloring with the symbols that need to be discovered; her paintings are multilayered with the message masked by abstraction.
A series of figurative paintings is characterized by strongly defined strokes, momentously done over the background, where the colors combine with certain details.
A great number of her paintings are in companies and private collections in Serbia, America and England.
Her inclination towards socializing, art and enjoyment in wine stories of her native vineyard area, to whose wine knightly order in Šumadija, opened numerous topics related to design and painting with wine and vineyard as subject matters.
Construction structure, background, research, experiment with different textures, love for large sizes are the core of her oeuvre, which the author describes herself:
“Paintings have miraculous power, they transform the most common old armchair above which they hang into an interesting, accentuated point in the interior. With their colors and motifs, paintings can complement, often harmonize various styles and refresh and warm the space. With their secret messages they provoke research and comments.”
