"As a key part of my practice, I put my girls into a variety of situations from which they need to find a way out. These experiments are usually done through my daily doodles but sometimes I need to bring them to life in order to see how they actually tackle such life problems. For that, I use stop motion gifs made from hand-drawn individual frames. The works are exploring ways in which the girls are solving the unusual adventures/problems/situations, whether alone, or with others." – Maja Djordjevic
Maja Djordjevic creates multi-disciplinary works that look like computer doodles. In reality they are traditional oil and enamel artworks performing some pixelated illusions. Djordjevic paints rectilinear shapes by hand, sketched out in an early kind of MacPaint program, where squares of color are so large as to prevent too much detail.
Her subject matter is usually a girl, most of the time that girl being herself, portrayed in various tragical and yet comical situations. The girl is often depicted naked exposing with a black vertical line a little scratch of her vagina and touching art history with feminine power and with the male and the female gaze. Her main color pallet enhances the playfulness of her works.
