Drenica immigrated to the United States in 2010. From then she taughtherself art starting from acrylics, watercolors, to digital art.Always challenging herself, this latest contemporary series was donein the most classic medium: oils.
Drenica Nacion’s latest series “Complimentary Lovers'' explores the importance of the viewer’s presence. Her work refutes the idea that
virtual reproductions of artwork on our phones, tablets and screens can replace the physical and emotional experience of being “present”
with a work of art.
The series evolves into deep and sensual portraits with colors that appear in constant flux: changing as one moves about them. Using
Fibonacci sequence patterns and complementary colors, as well as utilizing iridescent pigments, the colors shimmer and shift depending
on the angle of the viewer and reflection of light.
