The Party is Over (2017) by Rade Petrasevic is a still-life with an eye-catching mix of colour and texture. While his process of picking the right colour palette for each painting is fastidious, Rade’s actual painting process is quite swift, drawing upon various ardent feelings that arise from his daily interactions. Strikingly saturated red effuses objects from everyday life, and the bold textures intensify the painting. Brushstrokes that look like streaks of marker pen dynamically weave in and out of the radiant colour that dominates the painting, giving a contemporary sense to a traditional subject matter like still-life.
