Monika Slemc (born 1994) is currently finishing a Master’s degree in painting at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Ljubljana, where she also obtained Bachelor’s degree in 2017. Her primary interest is in painting. Presented artworks deals with the reflection about the status of painting today. Artworks are based on a focused view, which she tryes to establish with various materials and approaches. The image never  submits to the viewer, but it keeps slipping away, therefore, the viewer loses control over it. She lives and works in Zg. slivnica near Grosuplje.
