Pigments, mezzotints and photographs
After his exile in 1969, Jan Jedlička is too much connected with the countryside to continue the artistic language of fantastic realism, which he employed in totalitarian Czechoslovakia. He follows his Western contemporaries and is inspired by conceptual art (Land art, Spurensicherung et cetera). Of course, he continues to use the techniques of the old masters, and his works remain of very high quality, and not only visually.
Recently we presented the contemporary work of Jan Jedlička. Now we present his work from the sixties along with an excerpt from a film by Petr Záruba. You will learn about the essence of Jedlička’s works as well as some of his techniques, which are rare today because they are so labor intensive.
