About artist

Miroslav Polách practices a different approach to painting and images than that which viewers are normally used to. He separates individual forms and structures them into new compositions. The surface of the canvas becomes his laboratory, where non-matter and context-stripped elements are processed and newly put together in varied ways. His own painter’s arsenal is used so that they remain in their original form and in no way take part in traditional artistic ambition, i.e. to create a content illusion. The appearance of space, plasticity, imitation of material surfaces, Polách considers all this to be misleading. This is an unsuitable course of painting for him, because human experience, looking for some specific narrative message on a subject or object, naturally binds itself to each illusion formulated in this way. The artist’s efforts run contrary to this illustrative automation. His goal is to free objects of spatial totality and temporality and render them once again lively and free, independent of the human ego. Therefore, modelling potential is based both on aloofness and irony, as well as playfulness and curiosity.
