Ana Jagodic's painting practice is defined by a framework of individual "poetic truth," and precise artistic articulation of this subjective reality seems to be an essential motivation for her artistic practice.˝

The artworks of Ana Jagodic, an artist of the younger generation, can be included in the field of abstract art. However, the notion of abstraction in connection with her paintings does not make sense within a limited, historically defined artistic phenomenon but as a fundamental painting question. Her abstract paintings may be interpreted on two levels. The first one is formally aesthetic, and the second is emotionally subjective. Their antagonism manifests itself as a desire to achieve a formal notion of beauty and a desire for transcendence and the sublime.

In defining the aesthetic in fine arts, conceptions such as harmony, proportion, and form are used. These important notions express qualities functioning as procedures and responses of an artist in the making of the artwork. The appearance of the effects they define is material in nature, whereby the viewer physically perceives them with the help of the senses through colors, shapes, rhythm, and proportions. It is the "real" of an image, which is self-sufficient and autonomous.
