Ivanovska’s artistic endeavors are characterized with working and
exploring diverse media, combining them and openly moving between the
productions of installations, objects, paintings, drawings, collages, video
etc. Her visual language is based upon aesthetics and symbolism of primary
geometrical forms. In geometric art she experiences the cosmic, spiritual,
divine nature of things where symbols and their psychological meaning are
her main interests. She is also concerned with the spatial concept of art
transforming the gallery space and imposing visual impression upon the
spectator, combining different media. Audio-visual installations are
carrying the idea of creation of new life, the holiness of the act of giving
birth. Not only as an idea of human birth but also the idea of cosmic birth,
the genesis of the Universe.

Infinity is an ambient multimedia installation with a floor layout that
extends to the walls of the gallery and contains video art projected in the
installation represents a large circular geometrical composition that
contains the possibility of endless extension and multiplication of the
hexagonal shaped pieces in the surrounding space creating an illusion of
perspective and depth with its colors.
is variation constructed upon a geometric flower-like pattern with the
symmetrical structure of a hexagon called “Flower of Life” found in many
ancient cultures, including Macedonia. This work is a continuation of my
research in the field of “Sacred Geometry” in art with a new way of
practice. Sacred geometry is the basics of all geometry that allows the
structure of every form in the vast diversity, the principle of
interconnectedness, the inseparability and unity of all things. Expressed
throughout mathematical relations, harmony, divine proportions, golden
ratio, it is transferred from nature into art, music and cosmology.
both side rooms, video projections are simultaneously seen on which birth
and death of the human life path and the entire universe are symbolically
represented (one room as the symbol of birth and the other as a symbol of
death). The sun, as the central and most important motive-symbol of the
entire exhibition, in one video rises and in the other is going down through
a transparent sphere in the center of the video (the most perfect, most
universal of the forms, essential for understanding the act of creation from
which everything originated). Inside a geometric shape is built-in as a
symbol of completeness, integrity and limitless center of the cosmos. The
wings only highlight the aspiration for elevation of the spiritual. They are
an image of the balance of the two halves, a confluent of the dualistic
unity out of which all life comes from.
Infinity” represents a symbol of life-giving energy of the sun and its
reflection in the dawn, the transience of time and its cyclical rhythms,
life cycle that is endlessly repeated, the cycle of nature: birth, life,
death and rebirth, growth and beginning of a new cycle in life. With its
complex content besides its visual function, this work creates emotions and
questions related to human thoughts about the existence, infinity, path and
