Last Name Pasagic
Country Yugoslavia (Prev)
Biography 
Emilija Pasagic is a native of Belgrade in the former Yugoslavia. Formally educated in landscape architecture, she worked in Europe for several years before arriving in Toronto, Canada in 1993.

She focuses mainly on still life, particularly fruit and flowers executed in encaustic. This technique involves blending bee's wax and oil paint, applied to paper, board and canvas. In this contemporary reference to the ancient technique of encaustic the paint is sometimes blended into the hot wax, burnt into it or simply painted upon it. Careful layering and scratching is used to accent the texture. The resulting tones are the yellows and oranges of Spain and Morocco and the olives and crimsons of the Mediterranean.

Emilija says, "There is a sense of mystery within my art, the same mystery that surrounds every individual as they embark on life's journeys. When I paint I start with a sense of where I want to go and how I want to feel and by the end I find myself somewhere unique and different from what I intended."

Pasagic's work can be seen in many galleries In Toronto and various private collections in Canada, Germany, Yugoslavia and the United Kingdom.
