Ivan Kožarić’s Inner Eyes creates a strong suggestion of the invisible, intuitively sensed feeling of personal space that represents the outside-in facial expression, out of whose void, like tentacles, as a contact with the outer world, emerge inner eyes. Inner Eyes have confirmed that this sculptor tends to abandon plastic illusionism. Kožarić favours expression liberated from the imperative of perfection; moreover, he strives for intuitive explorations in which he approaches the other side and the amazing, that which is close to surrealism, but also a joyful nihilism in the spirit of Dadaism.
