ANOTHER PERSPECTIVE

Adam Šaková's exhibition project with the title 30, referring pragmatically to the number of presented works, follows on from the exhibition with the name 16 and is part of the exhibition project Another perspective. The horizontal painting installation is made up of vertical narrow paintings creating various larger or smaller clusters or individually placed paintings in the gallery space. Individual fragments of the landscape often bump into each other, overlap, create relationships or, on the contrary, stand out from the group. The individual paintings feature elements of the natural landscape as well as those marked by human intervention. Shown here are the remains of human activity, eroded, corroded temporary as the lump of snow on the format placed on the floor of the exhibition space is also temporary. Some paintings show a larger section of the landscape, others offer a macro shot. Textured pasty fragments imitate walls, fragments of architecture or the surface of stone. Frothed tree trunks are pressed directly into the paintings. The unifying element is the horizon present in most formats, a compositional pattern that connects the presented painting tree series into a complete composition, and the space between the paintings becomes part of the image.
