Gordana Olujic Dosic is a visual artist living in Toronto, Ontario. She was born in Belgrade, Serbia, former Yugoslavia (1951), where she received her B.A. in Textile Art and Design at the Faculty for Applied Arts, University of Arts in 1985. She moved to Toronto in 1988.
Spanning over thirty years, with numerous exhibitions (solo, two-person and group), other professional activities (teaching, artist’s talks, international workshops), Gordana’s work ranges from art textiles to mixed media and multimedia and has travelled from Canada to USA, Serbia, Poland, Bulgaria, Bosnia, Lithuania, France and Mexico.
Her work is personal, introspective and narrative. It is often about dichotomies of strength and frailty, permanence and ephemerality, trust and betrayal.
Gordana’s practice includes textile techniques like stitching and layering, working with photography and video, and using diverse materials, from paper and textiles to metal elements, as well as natural and man-made found materials. Material exploration is a very important part of her process. In recent years it has been complemented by the use of video, in a supporting role of a “layer” in her wall installations and a “modifier” of meaning.
