The artworks of Dr. Dita StarovaQerimi receive positive opinion from the critics since her very first exhibition. Her professor, Ms. Irene Delaroyer de Ramel, in view of Starova-Qerimi’s paintings from the students’ final exhibition in the mentioned studio in Paris, will say: She handles the secrets of the drawing with natural easiness and successfully enters the painting mysteries.

Her exhibited paintings easily suggest the inner creative power, especially the power to deal with the world of colors. The art critic, Sonja Abadzieva, will as well emphasize that the cult of the rich chromatic orchestrations in Dita Starova’s canvases is probably due to her long-years’ direct connection with the capital of the French and the world’s fine art – with Paris – surrounding where she grew up, developed and inspired the bohemian charm of the beauty. On the occasion of the thematic orientation “Border” for one of her exhibitions, the art critic Ana Frangovska will note: “The desire to cross beyond the border often imposes the question of belonging, identification, distinctiveness, and consequently it “feeds the curiosity” of discovering the unknown and the expected, the untouched and the unspent. This curiosity can challenge each one of us, but confronting the Other and the Otherness, the Beyond, that behind the Borders, regardless of the experience, makes us wiser, more powerful. Dita Starova’s paintings guide you across one border.

Cross it, and you will become richer for one more visual-aesthetic experience.” D-r Dita Starova-Qerimi has been Director of the National Gallery of Macedonia since 2015. In a relatively short period, she succeeded in directing the overall positive energy of the collective towards presentation of fundamental authors and artworks that have marked the Macedonian Fine Art, as well as towards authors from abroad. One of the many worth mentioning is the very successful jubilee exhibition of artworks by the painter Petar Mazev, opened in 2017 (visited by more than ten thousands guests), followed by one of the biggest and most successful presentations of artworks by the mural artist, Borko Lazeski, as well as the exhibition dedicated to the 100th Anniversary from the birth of the painter Ibrahim Kodra, one of the last European colossuses of the cubism.

Other notable exhibitions followed as well, encompassing works of the domestic and worldwide fine art. Worth mentioning are as well the occasion-related and special projects implemented on the initiative of the Director and conducted for the purpose of raising public awareness for the most vulnerable categories of children. These projects were carried out by organizing large numbers of art workshops, various events functionally adapted to children with special needs, all that in cooperation with the competent institutions, but also with the support and engagement of their parents. This includes the art project “Art for All”, intended for children from the earliest school age until their completion of secondary education, supported by the Dutch Embassy in Macedonia.
