Jaroslav Valečka - Internal Landscape and External Landscape
Opening:19/3 2016, 5pm
Dates: 20/3—22/5 2016
Location: Café fatal
Curator: Veronika Marešová
Jaroslav Valečka consistently persists in his classical approach to painting, systematically inspired by the roots of European landscape painting, specifically northern Romanticism, while also drawing on Modernist Expressionist painting and, in a certain sense, Symbolist painting as well. His aim, however, is not to
recycle familiar, tried-and-tested approaches, but to construct a personal artistic style possessing an inimitable colourist character.
Valečka’s landscapes are closely tied to the Lusatian Mountains in northern Bohemia, where he spent his childhood and adolescence.
He captures this landscape as a reflection of the people who live in it.
