With her luminous landscape portraits, Sanja Marušić creates new worlds with her images. They are depictions of fundamental themes in the life of a young woman, in particular, she tries to visualize new phases and personal periods of life.

In her creative process, which resembles meditation, the process of photography is intuitively controlled. Inspired by the landscape, sunlight, shadows or feelings, the artist creates a moment in time and lets her imagination flow in the creation of her images.

She uses a variety of analogue and digital techniques and experiments with colours and shapes. Escaping reality - embarking on a journey into a timeless and brightly coloured world - plays an essential role in her work.

Sanja Marušić (*1991) is a Dutch-Croatian artist. She graduated from the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague in 2013. She was nominated for the Paul Huf Award 2020. She had national and international exhibitions. Her work has previously been on display in the Mauritshuis, the Van Gogh Museum and Paris Photo, among others.
