Martina Grlić is one of the brightest artists of a new stream of Croatian realism which focuses on the figurative in art and on the narrative potential of the painting. The methodology of her work includes exploring the political, economic, and social heritage through the deconstruction of politics of memory, image reading, and gender aspect. The method she uses is based on ethnography and autoethnography of everyday life and popular culture as well as the transformation of found imagery into the painting background. Grlić explores the phenomenon of memory and reminiscence focusing on changes that took place, and are still happening in post-socialist society.
