Zdenek Trs

Zdeněk Trs (*1985, Liberec) completed his studies in the glass studio of the University of Applied Arts in Prague (prof. Vladimír Kopecký) and in the classical painting techniques studio of the Academy of Fine Arts there (prof. Zdeněk Beran). In his work, he functionally combines elements of both. The original interest in the descriptive world and its grasp resonates with radical realist tendencies. Among other things, the painting Garden (2005), which is part of the collection of the Liberec Regional Gallery, dates from this period. Around 2010, efforts to make more significant use of the illusory possibilities of painting appear in his work. Over time, these lead to a reduction of all the tools and strategies used, the result of which is an almost minimalist focus on the general principles of geometry and luminosity. The conclusions reached in this way turn out to be completely universal and universally valid. This period is also represented in the gallery's collections (Aton, 2014; Oscilace, 2015).
