Exhausted, I made my way through the dark undergrowth

22. 1. 2015 - 13. 3. 2015

Paintings by Tadeáš Kotrba (* 1986), graduate of the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague, who also had the opportunity to study at Central Saint Martins in London, are on the verge of landscape, portrait and figurative painting. At his first solo exhibition at The Chemistry Gallery he will present the thematic set of paintings which is inspired by the artist's residence on an island in Southeast Asia. Although this areas is associated with tropical flora, palm leaves and the bright colors of primitive island cultures, he has succeeded in achieving a solid atmosphere on his uncoated canvases, whereby the dirt and soil are sensed rather than the exotic fragrances. Through figures facing obstacles, we are drawn into the internal landscape of the painting. The large-scale space shrinks to an intimate personal world.
