13. 5. – 6. 6. 2021
curator: Jiří Kovanda
Anxiety in green
So the smooth wouldn't hurt.
to physically morph and adjust before bed.
Far too reminiscent of the unknown
The ambiguity of a piranha
The feeling after a butterfly
The cold, caused by the noise from which it emerged
Entirely unaccepted by the translucency
The raw nature of unguided growth
Appearing as of meaningful importance in the front, fading, dissolving in the back..
A summary of confusion!
Fragmentation of a memory
In the unrefineness of the present
The morphology of plankton
Bundles of hyphaeZuzana Jírová is a painter who uses various media in her work including traditional painting, drawing, as well as digital media. Her final paintings are abstract, but they always evoke images of mysterious creatures, organisms or specific objects. Ambiguity is an inseparable element of her work and pertains also to her approach of the area and space selected. Her paintings possess exquisite appeal, original colours, as well as charming and surprising structure. She is studying at the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague in the studio of Tomáš Vaněk.
