Exibition 'Back to Earh' is in Ostrava until the end of November!


Surprising, yet good news! The exposition 'Back to Earh' continues and will be in Ostrava until the end of November! So, you are all welcome to come to see the paintings and if you like even spend some time in such a pleasant environment as is in Antakarana and its Tea house.

The exhibition is to be seen in Antakarana, Ostrava - Zábřeh, 782/65. And it's near to ČEZ Arena and Clarion Hotel.


And a little about gallery itself.

This gallery is mostly inspired by polite and elegant 19th century, its romanticism and fashion. And it also deals with the nature of time, questioning its existence and suggesting the idea of us standing beyond it and playing with it as it pleases us. All of it gently alludes to the beauty of existence and the idea of immortality, as most of my characters on canvas are supposed to be wandering around all those centuries, dwelling in eternity and rejoice in beauty of life. 

For more information about inspiration, this gallery or even me, please visit my official websites.

Here, you can read something more about gallery 'Back to Earth', this gallery is devided into three parts: Amongst StarsAmongst Clouds and On the Ground. I can't forget my three little horse paintings. And of course, shortly about drawings: Puppets: Ladies from the Theatre.

About night and day, series 'Amongst Stars' and... Mozart's waking hours

Just for a start, these paintings around belonging to the 'Amongst Stars' series, a part of gallery 'Back to Earth'. But about it later. 

Night, day and Mozart
I would say this is my favourite series of paintings and, although all are specific and somehow different, it would be true. I am very keen to the theme of night and day and I love to watch sky. 

Just take a look up to the day sky - with its so many shades of blue, white, but also pink or even golden. And clouds expending and then vanishing in all of those shapes. It gives me the feel of freedom and also some kind of assurance and soothing, because what is any kind of unhappiness in comparison with something like this. Right things get the right meanings, while everything else fall apart. 

Which brings me to mornings, my favourite time of day. Mornings are magnificent times, especially the picture of trees in forest or park hidden in morning mist with slight and gentle sun lines shining through them. 

Even though it wasn't easy to learn to get up early, because in fact I prefer to work at night. But when I found out that Mozart slept from midnight to six o'clock in morning, it made itself easier - I love Mozart - like character and his music, which is great of course, but mainly: he is mad the right way, I would say at least. But yet polite and simply genius, of course again, because of music, yet I mean rather as a person.

But let's dedicate some lines to the night. This deep, beautiful and bright, but also somehow more real time, which is how exactly I perceive it. More real than any other moment of the shiny day. Maybe it is because most of all sleep, everything is calm and silent. Or it could be because, our seeing is limited and so our senses get free, what makes us perceive more wildly and I would say, brightly and clearly. As if the real world would've opened up only after sunset, welcomes us after the whole day, when we were mostly doing all of those nonsenses, which we were learnt to consider as important and normal, letting them just take our time away. 
Infinite night sky with all its charms is so beautiful, maybe because it wants to remind us of real life and its beauty.

Not only night and day, but also time is important for this series, but what about let it for another time, another day. 


And about series itself
Those paintings belongs to the surreal series 'Back to Earth' and deal with the theme of time and night and day.
'If people would be like stars, dancing on infinite, dark, yet bright night sky.'

One of Realities: Night Sky is triple acrylic painting on canvas - three paintings 20x20, (right above).
What it would be to live a life of your own choice, be free, 'dance amongst stars' and not to be limited by anything, anyone, by any opinion or belief? Imagine stars like people, perhaps gentleman and lady.


Undecided is an acrylic painting on canvas; 40x30 cm (above, the first painting in article).
Which world would you choose? And why? Most prefer shiny day, but under the lamp is the greatest darkness. On the other hand, in night, when you're not distracted by the garish light of day... But what if it really doesn't matter about the light?

Night and Day is an acrylic painting on canvas; 40x60 cm (on the left).
What is really the difference? May be he hesitated himself. Is it really better to live on night sky? However, the other option is to be under the rules of time and some other little nonsenses of the day world.

Time? is an acrylic painting on canvas; 40x40 cm (below)
Is time realy a train of events inevitably running one after the other, or it is just an illusion existing only during day, because at night, those who've created it for them selves sleep. And what if it really doesn't matter about the light or part of day?

If you like to purchase some of these, One of realities, Undecided and Night and Day are still for sale here.

A little bit more about Me

Just for a start, I am a self taught painter born in Czech Republic in 1991. But as art comes from soul, let's remain in originality and distinctiveness for a while. I prefer interests, when describing people.
So well; I was said those of main are out of date. May be. I paint of course, play the piano and now and then ride on horses. I love countryside and north nature, but also world metropolis and cafés, classic architecture and fashion. But as I enjoy diversity there is so many things around to be keen on, things of interests and beauty to be shared.

Art and inspiration

Most of my paintings are inspired by 19th century romanticism and fashion. But there is also the theme behind, for me much more important. Life, beauty of existence and the idea of immortality, as most of my characters on canvas are supposed to be wandering around all those centuries, dwelling in eternity and rejoice in beauty of life. 

After all whole ‘Back to Earth’ gallery deals with the nature of time, questioning its existence and suggesting the idea of us standing beyond it and playing with it as it pleases us. And also alludes to the freedom, gracefulness and own will in very basis of each being, its soul.  

Yet, I must admit I am very fond of the 19th century, the way life flowed these times, the politeness and passion for elegance and actual beauty.  I consider it's fashion very charming, especially the uniqueness of every dress and accessories typical for these times, but also the way of emphasizing woman figure, and thereby expressing its elegance and grandeur. 
Talking about this time period, one can’t forget, its inherent old English parks, cafes with iron chairs and fresh flowers on tables.

But I can't deny even the beauty of divine baroque, empire and polite, yet daring and ironical rococo. Even the idea of a mediaeval castle hidden in morning mist has its own undeniable charm.

My most bellowed painters are Alphonse Mucha, Giuseppe Boldini, Salvador Dalí, but also Rubens, Claude Monet and William Turner. 
Some say ‘art of living’, but I would say that life itself is art in motion. Depending entirely on you or so, to which style your own life will belong.

Upcoming exhibitions: 
Bílovec, Cafe Mon Ami, December 2014 - January 2015 
Prague, Friends Coffee Hause, April 9 to May 11, 2015
