One Song a Day Takes Mischief Away (oil on canvas)
The Cycle of images "One song a day takes mischief away" stems from the foreword of the homonymous popular film by Krešo Golik, subtitled „love comedy with singing“.

Since the content of the most popular croatian film in history is well known to the viewer, it enables him to grasp the comical situation. She paints selected shots from the film as portraits of well known characters and the emotional life of the heroes in which the impostation of the characters makes us guess the dialogues.

The crossover to a different media, static images with no sound become „dialogues“ of eye contacts made by the characters even outside the image itself. The characteristics of cinema as a medium are recognizable in the images. Using some computer program as a tool in media manipulation, the author manipulates film frames on a computer as photographs which are later repeated in her exhibited work as oil on canvas.
