Alžběta Josefy

In her work, Alzbeta Josefy concentrates on objectivity. This is not for the objects themselves, however, but rather due to the causes which lead to their configuration. Through her painting she find further layers in created shapes, and within these layers she then goes in search of their junctures and models. Organic, cellular shapes illustrated this way are based on her fascination by human organism, woven from a number of smaller components that create one whole together. In her rendering even the illustration of inorganic forms exudes vitality and corporeality. Her work is characterised by a search for form within the process of painting itself. She creates her absorbing illusion using a principle where the painting brightens - washes through the applied paint. The result is an image which perceptibly encompasses all these phases.
