Podoba Miss Monet je simbolno neke vrste moj zadnji avtoportret in eden izmed mojih prirejenih zgodovinskih likov, ki so nastali tekom let z ustvarjalnim poigravanjem, kot nekoč recimo Miss Constable Catherina, Johannes Lady in Leonardove večne ženske. Vse te ženske upodobitve so prežete z optimizmom, zasanjanostjo, zamaknjene v ljubezen, ki je pogoj za vsako ustvarjalnost, kot je v neki svoji oceni o mojih umetniških delih (ali stvaritvah) zapisal dr. Milček Komelj.

The image of Miss Monet is one of Catherina´s modified historical characters, who has been created over the years with creative interplay. Miss Constable Catherina, Johannes Lady and Leonardo.s Eternal Women are similar characters. As Milček Komelj, Slovenian art historian, wrote in one of his reviews of Zavodnik´s art, all these depictions of women are imbued with optimism, reverie, and rapt with love, which is a condition for any creativity.

Roža življenja ~ Flower of Life
120 cm, življenje na platnu ~ life on canvas

SPOROČILO LJUBEZNI
V tvoja – moja – najina jutra 
Svilnato tkem niti 

ali so konci novi začetki in 
kam gredo ko se spremenijo v zvezdnate preproge 

Ujete iskre zrcalnih slik 
padajo med odmevi 
ne morem se jim upreti 

Vonj po vrtnicah me kliče 
razpiram krila in se oziram v čudeže življenja 
novih bregov in ljubezni 
..........
MESSAGE OF LOVE
In yours - my - our mornings 
Silky weaving threads 

asking whether ends are new beginnings 
and where do they go when do they transform into star mats 

Caught sparks of mirror images
falling between the echoes 
I can't resist them

The perfume of roses is calling me 
opening up my wings 
and looking at the wonders of life of new banks and love 
(prevod Maya Vidmar)

All the Little Lights 2015

Vsega je nasulo letošnje leto –
Ostala sem praznih rok in suhega naročja:
Jabolka gnila, ljubezen ovela.
Komaj čakam bledih sulic mladega ločja,
Obraslih grč, da bi spet ozelenele.

16.11.2014 Charity (Painting on Chocolate)

V prekrasnem ambientu Hotela Kristal v Bohinju se je zbrala ekipa umetnikov in slikala z jedilnimi barvami na slastne čokoladne podlage. Nekateri na bele, nekateri na temne. Jaz sem izbrala svetlo, moj motiv pa je bil deklica z balonom, izhajala pa sem iz svoje grafike z naslovom »There is always Hope«. Vsa zbrana sredstva bodo namenjena hudo bolni desetmesečni punčki. Taken at Hotel Kristal

In the beautiful ambience of the Hotel Kristal situated in Bohinj, a team of artists has gathered and painted with edible colors on the top of delicious chocolate base. Some in white, some in the dark. I chose a bright one. My motive was a little girl with balloon, original from one of my graphics entitled "There is always Hope." All funds collected will be used for seriously ill ten-month baby girl.

INVITATION / VABILO

Prijazno vas vabimo na otvoritev razstave »DA VINCIJEVI SAKRALNI ZAPISKI O KLASIFIKACIJI DREVES«, mag. umetnosti CATHERINE ZAVODNIK , ki bo 16. oktobra 2014 ob 19.00 uri v Kristalni palači, Ameriška 8, 1000 Ljubljana, ob 19.00 uri.

Avtorico in njena dela bo predstavila Univ.dipl.um.zg./zg. - in likovna kritičarka Bojana Čampa, ki je med drugim zapisala:
»Avtoričine vizije in globok arhetipski praspomin, jo vežejo na čas renesanse; na Toskano, Firence, Leonarda in njegove sodobnike. V njenih grafikah in zapisih pa se ta, skoraj šest stoletij star duh oživlja kot zapis globoke, zavedne ali nezavedne navezanosti na preteklost, ki dobiva skozi podobe v začetku 21. stoletja novo obliko, vsebino in duhovno konotacijo. WAGANDA 410., češnjevo drevo je v celotnem ciklu njen 'zadnji' poklon pomladi, Sieni in čarobno glinenim likovnim zapiskom o klasifikaciji dreves.

Zahvala pri procesu peke in patiniranja glinenih eksponatov / mag. Polona Demšar Razstava bo na ogled do 30.10.2014.

James Stewart: "You know, I just love Grace Kelly. Not because she was a princess, not because she was an actress, not because she was my friend, but because she was just about the nicest lady I ever met. Grace brought into my life as she brought into yours, a soft, warm light every time I saw her, and every time I saw her was a holiday of its own. No question, I'll miss her, we'll all miss her, God bless you, Princess Grace."(Gorgeous blue silk dress by our top fashion designer Modni studio Mojca Celin at The Grimaldi Forum Monaco) — with Catherina Zavodnik in Monte-Carlo, Monaco.

The image of Miss Monet is a recent symbolic self-portrait of Catherina Zavodnik and one of her modified historical characters, who has been created over the years with creative interplay. Miss Constable Catherina, Johannes Lady and Leonardo´s Eternal Women are similar characters.

ART MONACO

Art is about embracing the freedom of the human mind and accepting the human condition. Therefore Art cannot exist or be fully appreciated without support, both immaterial and material. I feel privileged by the people who come to see my work at ART MONACO 2014, who share my spiritual vision and feel enriched by my Art. I am also grateful to those who by their generosity make it possible for me to show my Art to the world as well as enabling me to keep developing myself as a working artist.

15.3.2014 O Music lead the way

O Music lead the way (30 x 30 cm, Limited edition 60
Artfinder: http://goo.gl/nWgdY8 )

Inspired by poem Storm - Music/ Written by: Henry Van Dyke
O Music hast thou only heard
The laughing river, the singing bird,
The murmuring wind in the poplar-trees,--
Nothing but Nature's melodies?
Nay, thou hearest all her tones, 
As a Queen must hear! 
Sounds of wrath and fear, 
Mutterings, shouts, and moans, 
Madness, tumult, and despair,
All she has that shakes the air 
With voices fierce and wild!
Thou art a Queen and not a dreaming child,--
Put on thy crown and let us hear thee reign 
Triumphant in a world of storm and strain! 

Echo the long-drawn sighs
Of the mounting wind in the pines;
And the sobs of the mounting waves that rise
In the dark of the troubled deep
To break on the beach in fiery lines.
Echo the far-off roll of thunder,
Rumbling loud
And ever louder, under
The blue-black curtain of cloud, 
Where the lightning serpents gleam.
Echo the moaning
Of the forest in its sleep 
Like a giant groaning
In the torment of a dream. 

Now an interval of quiet
For a moment holds the air
In the breathless hush
Of a silent prayer. 

Then the sudden rush
Of the rain, and the riot
Of the shrieking, tearing gale 
Breaks loose in the night, 
With a fusillade of hail! 
Hear the forest fight,
With its tossing arms that crack and clash 
In the thunder's cannonade,
While the lightning's forked flash 
Brings the old hero-trees to the ground with a crash!
Hear the breakers' deepening roar, 
Driven like a herd of cattle
In the wild stampede of battle, 
Trampling, trampling, trampling, to overwhelm the shore! 

Is it the end of all?
Will the land crumble and fall? 
Nay, for a voice replies 
Out of the hidden skies, 
"Thus far, O sea, shalt thou go, 
So long, O wind, shalt thou blow: 
Return to your bounds and cease, 
And let the earth have peace!" 

O Music, lead the way--
The stormy night is past,
Lift up our hearts to greet the day,
And the joy of things that last. 

The dissonance and pain
That mortals must endure,
Are changed in thine immortal strain
To something great and pure. 

True love will conquer strife,
And strength from conflict flows, 
For discord is the thorn of life
And harmony the rose.
