Výstava Ľuba Stacha Svetlo a citlivá vrstva približuje jeho experimentálne fotografické výskumy, ktorým sa venoval na konci osemdesiatych a na začiatku deväťdesiatych rokov minulého storočia.
Audiences frequently perceive Petra’s work on two levels – one is full of merry illustrations which we know from books and magazines, and the second is found in the world of Instagrams. The visuality of her Instagram sketches directly react to moments of the experienced, similar to the photos of many users of this network. The format only enhances the impression of photography – Petra uses classic Polaroid dimensions, but she captures her shots manually using alcohol-based markers which add a peculiar edge. Her repertoire of drawings is diverse – starting with intimate family moments up to reactions to events which shake our society in some way. And thus we can encounter Petra’s smiling daughters as well as Ján and Martina, who in one shot symbolically no longer look at this world.
Ján Zoričák is one of the most significant glass artists in Slovakia and France. He is also one of those exceptional art personalities of Slovak origin who has gained international recognition. He works in the difficult sector of glass design, which requires artistic vision and ability as well as the capacity to master the demanding technological processes and to discover unconventional methods of working with glass.
This exhibition brings together 23 of the leading artists from the Philippines.
An extensive amount of his artwork, predominantly on paper from Schenectady, Albany (NY) in the US, was generously donated by the Curtis family and represents a rare opportunity to complement the collection of drawings and the Archive of Visual Arts of the Slovak National Gallery by new artwork from the 1920s to the 1940s – paintings, drawings, sketches, sketchbooks and clippings from the period press.
