From the foreword by Sonja Švec Španjol, mag.hist.art.
"In the new cycle of paintings, Tea Morić Šitum abandons the expected and predetermined usages of artistic expression and begins her artistic research, which also becomes an area of her spiritual search. The parallelism of the research process creates a unique dynamic expressed on the surface of the canvas, primarily through the speech of lines, planes, and colors. The motif of still life, more precisely flowers, is just a starting point for building an artistic story that quickly goes beyond the notion of the starting motif and begins its own life. The motif of flowers on the way from figuration to content essence is decomposed and gradually transformed into completely abstract thought. Namely, the harmony of colors and shapes is defined by the inner rhythm of the composition, which does not impose, define, determine, or close but indicates, encourages, and opens the mind to cognition."
