Publications for the exhibition of Antonín Střížek Apparent lightness
The illusory lightness and elegance of Střížek’s canvases in fact conceal a language of significance, with which the images speak. The earlier romantic conviction that art is able to transform the world and change people’s lives together with the sense of their existence is not prevalent anymore. Now there is a post-romantic painting based on the painter’s ability to share an individual experience of the material world of objects that surround us in our everyday life. Their image, however, can instantly uncover a deeper truth about the ordinary.
