“I am a part of my art, but not the decisive force. The more I want my paitings to be just what they are, the more they are everything. My paintings tarted out of love for nature and the art that was before me.“
Zdeněk Sýkora, 1990

About

Galerie Zdeněk Sklenář is opening the exhibition My Nature, presenting a selection of Zdeněk Sýkora’s oeuvre. This is an intimate retrospective, showing some of Sýkora’s artwork in an entirely new context. One surprise is the inclusion of Sýkora’s photos from the first half of the 1940s, from the very first days of his artistic career, which were not associated with painting but with photography. In addition to the photographs, the curator’s selection chosen by Lenka Sýkorová, Zdeněk Sýkora’s wife and the co-maker of many of his works, also introduces some less-known Cubist paintings from the 1940s and a few Post-Impressionist landscapes from the 1950s. The show also presents some of the artist’s landscape paintings that he produced in parallel with his famous structures and lines, which of course cannot be omitted from the exhibition.
