untitled (Palace)

Jurak, Drago

Asked what his pictures represent, Jurak replies: “They are old towns where modern people could live today. There are towers linked by iron, decorated with carving and built on a hill from which a majestic view may be had. Then come the streets, squares, football fields. I would like to build into such a town everything our seamen have seen as they wandered the earth and stopped at big ports of the world, things they told me about. My favorite pastime is listening to the stories of our seamen when they talk about where they have been and what they have experienced. I know that no country could build such a city, it would too expensive, but if countries would get together, then it would be possible.”
