ABSTRACT

The article deals with new paintings of Nada Žiljak, an academic painter. She applies an infrared method in painting. Infrared painting is an innovative method of creating a unique double image - one visible to the eye, and the other, hidden drawing that can be seen with an infrared camera. The first image is a luxurious, often abstract painting concealing a monochrome drawing of distinct erotic themes. The author creates an original world based on hiding and discovery inspired by the power of his own imagination. With the longing for mysteriousness, he also exudes the authoritarian irony that criticizes one’s hypocrisy - the simultaneous need for personalizing concealment, masking and exposing, controlling the other. Therefore, not only technology and new visual expression are presented but also a new approach to presenting human intimacy, certain taboos of topics, or a certain artistic worldview.

Keywords: infrared painting, infrared colors, hidden picture, double image, security in fine art
