“The current exhibition project Everything Unknown Looks Amazing presents works from the New Species series, which have been continuously created since last year. At first glance, we can observe a shift in the artist’s work, which is communicated through the works’ formal, technological, and ideological aspects. The initial experiments, which are reflected in the current works, were carried out in a temporary studio spatially predestined to create monumental realizations. However, the author’s development is often unpredictable, so, despite the opportunities offered, she focused on small paper formats, on which she tried working with ink. So far faithful primarily to acrylic, she has discovered new expressive and technological possibilities of the historical technique, which she has managed to transfer to the painting canvases.” – Michal Stolárik
