Contemporary production of Milan Vagač is distinguished by the heterogeneity of approaches as a part or a
continuation of the gradients of morphologically closed systems which are
generated either in the future or for the future of painting. In Vagač’s
understanding, a picture is an autonomous tool of a flexible approach to the
way how to come to terms not only with the “backward glance”, but also with the
memory as a particular invariable which enables the examining of the “returns
in art“. The accentuation of the openness
of playing in the surpassing of the classical means of expression (drawing, painting,
object) and the new media (digital technologies, the internet) and parallel, distinctively inherent settings in the
approach to the painting media shows itself as one
of the ideal forms of his artistic
program. The interest in the heritage of modern art and modernity, especially
in the tendencies connected with geometrical abstraction, design and
architecture wholly correspond with contemporary artistic strategies.
contribution is, that above all he is intensively engaged in the function of
painting itself in the post-digital era and not only in the influence of new
technologies and the internet.
