"Franc Vozelj introduced one of his classic settings with 'A Group' (1981), which in many respects explains his evolutionary path as well as his conceptions and artistic contemplation. This picture, which strikes us as an academic study with a somewhat 'artificial posture'; reflects the fundamental thesis of Vozelj's understanding of the painter's motif . One thing is, of course, immediately obvious: the essential means of the painter's expression is a human figure which re-appeared continually in both Slovene and European painting of the 1970s and 1980s despite the domination Of abstract painting. Vozelj's human figures originated in academic 'musclemen', later replaced by live models, but the painter peculiarly transformed them into unique images. They are characterised by grotesque features, surrealistic metamorphoses and compositional liveliness.
Richness of motion is the step forward that followed 'A Group' Human images as deformed or newly combined figures are the painter's basic preoccupation in oil paintings, while his drawings go into detailed analyses of skeletons and fragments of human anatomy.
The network of a multitude of details within the wider setting of the composition is the common thread in his paintings. Fragmented images that step out of or into the white space have become a steady motif. The painter tries to observe this motif from every possible perspective and to invest it with as much imagination and fantasy as possible."
