Zuzka Vaclavik: modularity

vernissage

Zuzka Vaclavik presents a series of square, acrylic on panel paintings that are meant to function modularly: each painting is made of simple shapes and the orientation of each work can be altered to suit the viewer.

Design elements found in our popular culture and Matisse’s cut paper works continue to be sources of inspiration. The bright, graphic nature of the compositions relates them back to their source material in a kind of loop: various facets of our contemporary visual world, such as pattern and design.


Vaclavik's work is in the permanent collection of the High Museum of Art and has been exhibited at MOCA-Ga in Atlanta, Georgia.
