A review of Dina Jakšić Pavasović’s works was written by the well-known art historian Barbara Vujanović, who constantly monitors the work of the Jakšić family in all their projects.

Abstraction is the core and starting point of the creative expression of Dina Jakšić, an artist whose primary medium is painting. In it, she nurtured a recognizable style of abstract expressionism, which sometimes turns into a calmer lyrical abstraction. Exciting coloristic constellations are equally determined by intuitive thinking and experience, as a reflection of the painter’s rich knowledge of international and Croatian history of painting and other media, as well as the local, Brač tradition.

Calm, loose areas alternate in images with swirls and condensed coats of paint. And while in earlier works this relationship implied equilibration between different dynamics, whose bearers are primarily coloristic contrasts, the painter gradually unites them into a coherent whole, in which mergers and drippings are materialized. The artist shows interest in the surface of the painting, which she creates with pasty layers of paint, on which she often intervenes afterward. Uterineness is already present in Dina’s oeuvre in the processes of collage and burning of materials. Especially interesting is the need for the act of painting to release the traditional background, ie canvas. From her beginnings, the author did not hesitate to reach for backgrounds such as newsprint, which offered her the challenge of reacting to printed content.

Likewise, when designing an exhibition presentation of individual cycles, the artist will be very happy to “move” into unexpected spaces such as an abandoned stone house or quarry, thus enabling the works to acquire more complex associations and interpretations. Dina’s desire to expand her field of activity experienced the greatest expansion with her doctoral dissertation On the dowry through an artistically designed space – a monumental installation, as part of which she developed a project to become monumental stone monograms on the road between Donji Humac and Nerežišće. Each monogram embodies the idea of ​​a dowry, that is, one woman’s destiny.

The choice of stone as a base and material of expression is indicative because it emphasizes a more pronounced connection with the family tradition of processing. In his approach to this noble material, Dina completely suppresses the urge to intrude, which is especially evident in recent works, carefully cut, reconstructed, and finely crafted colored objects. With their design, Dina is the strongest confirmation so far of the connection to the stonemasonry of the Jakšić family.

The layers of paint follow and emphasize the quality and structure of the stone, which results in a possible reading of Dina’s painting narrative as organic. Although her style implies this premise, just like that of Mediterranean identity, it is first and foremost, in its form and meaning, confirmation of the act of painting and the phenomenon as an approach to self and the world. The urge of abstraction, the process of painting, and then the result, are a precondition for shaping one’s own perception and understanding.

By avoiding the literal presence of a certain topic or content, Dina Jakšić enables the simultaneous autonomy of details, as well as the necessity of integrity and functioning within the whole. Associativity is not exhausted in one respect, in one possibility of interpretive recognition, or in anchoring in one sense. It always remains open, just like the likelihood of further artistic breakthroughs and research.
