Hatidza Mulic – Q1 Art Competition – Artist Portfolio Magazine

My work explores the relationship between multiculturalism and ethics. With influences as diverse as John Singer Sargent and Marina Abramovic, new synergies are manufactured from both simple and complex dialogues. Ever since I was a child I have been fascinated by the essential unreality of the human condition. What starts out as hope soon becomes corrupted into a carnival of lust, leaving only a sense of nihilism and the dawn of a new beginning.
With my paintings, I have come back to the beginning, when the search for wholeness opened up a world of chaos, madness, and darkness. I have always endeavored to go where I thought the point of view of another individual is—to arrive at another’s viewpoint. I had always thought that this destination was the key to wholeness—but I had always felt exhausted and drained of energy, more like a battle-weary warrior than a woman giving herself to others. In these, the new sense of fragmentation only comes when they are viewed simultaneously, but each painting is a whole, a whole persona.

As subtle phenomena become distorted through emergent and personal practice, the viewer is left with a hymn to the limits of our existence.

  1. While much of the art entered in this competition is unmistakably beautiful- some of it exquisite- I stop to look longer at Hatidza’s. It’s eye-catching and notable not just for being technically skillful or visually striking (which each piece certainly is) but also for being thoughtful. She has a distinct voice and message that goes beyond “pretty” or “pleasing” and is capable of more than being expensive wall hanging for a doctor’s office, background decor after thoughts. Her work displays a strong and personal world view, a conviction beyond being “good.” Instead, Provocative. Challenging. Playful. And a favorite of mine.
