Dragica's practice is influenced by a minimalist, process biased aesthetic and its central technical concern is mark making.
Why draw x-rated shoes? For fun, and to make up for being chastised for drawing 'rude' pictures when I was a child. Rude Shoes is partly inspired by the popular pictures of shoes done by Andy Warhol when he was a fashion illustrator in the 1950s.

Bill Sampson’s paintings – if we can call them that – are not contrived formal images, cadences of colour carefully orchestrated into iridescent compositions. Rather, they are paper-thin stage sets for liquid acts of ruin and destruction.
