About artist

For artist Jaromír Novotný (1974), graduate of the Prague Academy of Arts (the drawing studio of Prof. Jitka Svobodová), his work is typified by a constant repetition of questions about the same issues and the further clarification of related answers. These at first are offered through intuitive indications – such as fleeting instances in the guise of realistic, even naturalist, mini-moments in order to later induce the process of meaning formation, clarification and the thereto related shape definition – reconstruction of meaning. The whole aggregate of theses, through which one can find the author’s source, can be captured in early attempts to define the term „home“ (homeland) as a „livable and living space.“ In his works so far Novotný continually addresses the theme of the individual’s relationship to spatio-temporal experience. He gradually frees himself of these experiences in order to return to them by different routes.
