The threshold of interpretation is the line between the abstract and the concrete. It’s a field in which the undefined passes into the representative. It's the mind's comment on everything that exists and it is everyone's view on everyday life.

Up to the threshold of interpretation we therefore observe a thing or phenomenon "as it is" (a field where the mind is closest to objective truth without its own interference), and after crossing the threshold we see a thing or phenomenon "as it should be" because we translate it into known, in old. The foundation of our struggle for reality is the consolidation of “truth” within the threshold of interpretation.

 
 
 

Vasja Grabner is a painter, draughtsman and designer born in 1976 in Slovenia. He is a person with an extensive range of interests, whose art transcends the narrow confines of national boundaries and in which universal values lend themselves to interpretation. His art works are questions that cannot be solved by science, religion or ideology, but can be answered at the level of an individual. As a defender of humanity, Grabner took part in creating a successful international project ART FOR JUSTICE, which points out human rights and minority problems. His recent interests revolve around thought processes, social structures and cultural barriers. He lives and works in Slovenia.
