Zbyněk Sedlecký (1976)

Zbyněk Sedlecký belongs to a strong generation entering the Czech art scene at the turn of the millennium. He underwent art training first at the Brno Faculty of Fine Arts under the guidance of Jiří Načeradský, and later at the Prague Academy under Jiří Sopko. The major theme of his works is the relation of place and time with the nature of human memory. The result is stylised, often intentionally out-of-focus compositions that can give the impression of camera recordings or obscured memories. The author uses the traditional medium of hanging paintings in a completely new way, which allows him to create his own fully distinctive artistic language. However, it is based on the traditional genre of figural composition, often conceived in a generous way. In his work, Sedlecký draws on real situations and moments, relies on the initial record of what he has seen, and allows himself to be retroactively influenced by mediated emotions.
