Marián Čunderlík – Struggling for a new vision
Through his early figural work, Čunderlík became an imaginary connection between a modern tradition of Slovak painting and the non-tradition of abstract tendencies.
The exhibition of photographs by Peter Paško, Palo Luka, Peter Nižňanský and Julo Nagy, titled “Magical Moments”, is documentation of photo trips to almost all continents made between 2006 and 2016.
Twenty finalists, from which three winners will emerge in the autumn, have been carefully selected by the jury.
Viera Kraicová – Paintings 1962 – 1994
The exhibition presents the artist´s painting experiments hovering on the border of abstraction and figuration, her spontaneous gestural paintings, imaginative figurative works and returns to colour patch as a crucial means of expression and intermediary of emotional expression. There are also represented classical genres like still life or portrait as well as records of the artist´s spontaneous painting that, in a way, always followed the contours of a figural basis.
Renata & Marek Ormandík – Ravens, Busts and Flowers
The present exhibition is a result of common life, existence, efforts and creativity of Renata and Marek: painting, crocheting, drawing, knitting, thinking, inspiring one another.
