"In the series Guests Reproductions of Nonexistent Paintings, Rankovic opens new spaces of artistic discourse, by introducing contents of known figural compositions immortalized in the history of art to the present everyday and common his own living space. Thanks to quality high-resolution digital photography and photo-montage software, that is, by skillfully merging human figures from historical paintings with contemporary interiors, the author succeeds in producing a puzzling effect with his audience, who are unable to discern the original from the reproduction, and finally asks a question of the value of the reproduction art and reality as a work of art." From Creative Abolition of Time by Andrej Tisma
