Kristína Šimeková informácie o autorovi


„For a long time I have been exploring the principle behind the construction of abstract paintings. The cornerstones of my work are motion and colour. Motion creates abstract "narratives" and color emits emotions. I understand painting to represent the pleasure of creation. My interest is directed at the initial contact between the audience and my paintings. I capture their attention in order to examine what is hidden inside those works. The visual experience offers a moment of silence and intimacy. It seems like my paintings have no deeper story, no narrative. But there exists a title going along with each work and it hides a precise situation, a specific emotion and thought. The title does not provide a clear explanation, but it helps to understand what cannot be told with words alone. We live in a world overwhelmed with information and facts. Everything needs to have an exact description. But a human soul does not work that way. It doesn't have a formula to be followed. I try to go a little bit deeper than words are able to.“
