"Oriental Revivalism" by Donat Plenter
Please find below my review of your art for use as you please, for personal or business purposes. Your art is magnificent!
Renata Sporcic has discovered in herself a veritable tsunami of talent as evidenced by her work. It is a raw talent for interpreting and expressing our humanity that cannot be learned, emulated or imbued through time or experience. It is either within a soul or it is not. I recently had the great pleasure of meeting the creator of this magnificent work, and was awed by the power and the explosion of her interpretive energy. I am not an artist, but a simple soul, inextricably moved by not only the artist herself, but by the energy in her studio. It was an experience which left me wondering about how much power exists in human expression.
To the great fortune of the world, Ms. Sporcic discovered her power and relented to its fire and demand to be unleashed. So, why is the work so moving? Like all great artists, they are almost maniacally sequestered to their studios, drawn to their medium of expression and become its catalyst-slave to an extent that they perhaps themselves cannot understand. I would say that Ms. Sporcic has created Oriental Revivalism and defined this expression not only through a medium but also by her choice of stylistic and subject matter expression. Her work is very complex and concurrently embodies a magnificent human history, a future through cultural revolution, fusion, hope and human desire. Yet, it also hints at cultural complexity and the emergence of women in such ancient, and tradition bound cultures. Her work draws out emotions of hope and release, but reminds us that change is slow to manifest from desire to social norm.
Further, it radiates elegant erotica alluding to our natural urges for love, compassion and physical expression, while simultaneously acknowledging the historic interpretation of women being chattel. Her work, "Sea Rover" brings these elements into obvious confluence. "Alter Ego" depicts the dreamy hope of the new souls of society, yet reminds us that old forces are still at play. "Makovnacha" brings us the bold determination of the Revivalist in our century, though in diametric opposition, "Looking to Love Me" gives us a gentle reminder that we are still bound and rooted in tradition - and freedom, though close, is not yet fully at hand.
In sum, Renata Sporcic, through Oriental Revivalism gives us the gift - through a single image - of our own complex history as individuals and as members of cultural structures. Chinese, Japanese, Vietnameese or Korean - Oriental in the broader sense and otherwise. The transcending power of her work is something that none of us, certainly not I, can escape.

"Freedom's Love" is completed
The latest acrylic on wood from Geisha series , "Freedom's Love", is completed. The painting is 18 x 24 inches on ash plywood panel and it symbolizes and personifies the effort to save dolphins from senseless slaughter.
"Freedom's Love" is inspired by the movie "The Cove", the Academy Award Winner for Best Documentary of 2009. "The Cove" follows an elite team of activists, filmmakers and freedivers as they embark on a covert mission to penetrate a remote and hidden cove in Taiji, Japan. The result is a provocative mix of investigative journalism, eco-adventure and arresting imagery, adding up to an unforgettable story that has inspired audiences worldwide to action.
