Písařík’s paintings and 3D objects draw on the act of breaking a certain whole. This is a stream of continuous shape and thought transformations that is particular to popular and mass-scale products. From this unstable course of events the eye can capture only certain fragments, incomplete messages to which it attaches associations and recollections. The view slides across objects‘ surfaces, stopping sometimes at symbolic structures, interesting shapes. It is bedazzled by flashes. Písařík has also often reflected on the world of fashion and design, which spoke to him through its details (brands, logos). Now he focuses rather on fleeting impressions, which have their influence mainly in the areas of light and colour. Both however correspond to the fluid character of contemporary visual experiences. The view is fed by mass-media images and urban spectacles. The details of this stream analyse, cuts run through them. The impressive trembling perceives the transforming visual show as a flash of the moment: a sudden bedazzlement. Písařík’s objects are also typified by their unstable composition, their fragmented and temporary nature. We perceive in them the potential presence of a breakdown and possible variability. The artist’s works have no clear meaning. The destruction of meaning is also one of their important strategies. They are sort of spatial jewels, deceptive and directed only to the outside.
Solutions from Zürich is pleased to present Swiss artist El Frauenfelder(*1979) for the second time in the czech republic. Fraunenfelder studied at the School of Applied Arts in Zurich and the Academy of fine arts Helsinki in Finnland.
Her artistic oeuvre spans painting,and works on paper all of which she combines in a cleverly devised labyrinth of abstract and realistic aesthetics. A central theme is found in the system of painting still lifes,landscapes and banal architecture, especially its inclination to misconceptions and double entendres which make human interaction so exciting. Confusion, banality, incomprehension – to name only a few impressions of modern architecture and life we have to endure – constitute the source for Frauenfelders art. In her paintings the artist abstracts everyday expressions with her nonchalant esprit and quiet subversive irony.
The exhibition consists of pictures in various formats printed on canvas.The powerful presence of color and forms provide content in another sense and challenge the distinction between illusion and reality. The intensity and luminance of the art works is intriguing. The transparency of the compositions add unexpected depth to the paintings, as paint streaks cast a shadow on the canvas background. The two-dimensional canvas is thus transformed into a three-dimensional shape, an intriguing force of attraction with tremendous expression.
