Marika Volfová

3,4 Planet Earth

 

13/10/2017 – 3/12/2017

 

Opening 13/10 from 7pm

 

 

Marika Volfová is a young artist, finishing the Faculty of Fine Arts in Brno next year. Originally, she expressed herself primarily through painting, bearing a significant drawing lines and certain rough ungracefulness. Later on, in 2015, she worked on strong, raw paintings based on sketches made during her trip in Northern Africa and the Middle East. It was a kind of travelogue into the depth of inherited memory, mythical landscapes of subconsciousness, where violence and sex create the first social archetypes of acting. Banal situation of peeing on the beach, gutted guts, expressive conception and colours. The desire for exotics and fear of the unknown in one. Volfová is successful in targeting the right emotional centres to induce strong experience, raising questions connected with contemporary globalization. 

The interest for different cultures led her to active help to refugees in the Greek camps, later on to organize independent culture in the Netherlands. At the moment, facing the real voluntary and involuntary nomadism, Volfová is considering her role of a professional artist, so the exhibition in Luxfer can be very dramatic – for her and for the viewer as well. Before the show, she will be staying in the gallery, creating a site specific project.

The paintings of Roel Jeroen van der Linden are binding together animality and diversity. Maritimes, portraits, figures, stillifes – all is mixed in the colourful boom in his work. His attitude to the medium is clear: A painting is always about painting and about the painter. Without painter no painting. Hence the painter is subject of the painting and because he/she paints, painting is subject of the painting. It's the task of each painter to research (paint) why he/she paints and to research (paint) the state of painting in his/her time. 

Roel Jeroen van der Linden graduated in Amsterdam and Prague Academy of Fine Arts. Now he lives and works in Prague.
