"I work with the viewer's subconsciousness; my paintings want to nudge your imagination, they are based on visions and dreams. Short sneak peeks into stories and characters allow viewers to run their own continuation of what is depicted on the painting."
Klara is a figurative painter living and working in Prague, Czechia. She finished her studies at the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague in 2020 with a Master's degree and has been actively participating in numerous exhibitions in her home country and abroad. She was a Finalist at BBA Artist Prize 2019, Germany and Mostyn Open 21, Great Britain.
Klara focuses on symbolic depictions of situations, persons, feelings, or objects. She paints the world around her using significant contemporary elements and a bit of sad or scary feeling that is common to all of us. She also likes to insert absurd jokes and moments into the paintings as well – so the result is not only scary or weird but also funny in a way.
She likes to work with a subconscious mind, creating her ideas, visions or stories from her own imaginative landscape. She is trying to make the artworks in such a way, that the painting would nudge the viewer's imagination and let the people reveal the stories behind the paintings. Klara works mainly with oil paints on linen canvas.
