Nikola Sarić positions himself as a viewer of human thought and action in areas such as art and contemporary history, theology and architecture. Current topics range from analysis of the political-religious landscape in the light of cultural and social processes to dealing with the experience of temporal and spatial conditions as well as mental and physical conditions. The focus of his artistic work lies on the threshold from existence to tran­scen­dence, in the simultaneity of opposites, the moments of paradox, the moments of recognition and the seconds of transformation.
