Cocoon

Patrik Kriššák studied painting studio at the University of Ostrava to Daniel Balaban. Ever since the study examines the medium of painting and image options, thematically related to art itself. It does so with ease, distance and (self) irony, which allows him to create images of the spatial installation, complemented by (often found) objects, ready-made or living objects (plants). When listing (with a wicked smile), the basic unit is a brush stroke paintings, at the same moment his claim to color shifts and mystify himself and the viewer. As a "correct" next to the painter paints abstract paintings figural "couch potato", which in turn surrounds the incandescent bulbs to more problematic automatic acceptance image. To Patrik's work is typical experimental approach and search for a new "his own" painting technique. Now to that he had worked, although last year began to form so-called. "bottle paintings". Instead of brushes to use bottle with mixed color which flips on canvas or paper and figuratively continues action painting as we know it since the fifties. Paper cocoons in which hides her paintings are a metaphor for a time closed the developmental stage of the nascent work. The person who enters the space of the painting, is not only the author, but the picture itself. From the two-dimensional media installation becomes a spatial object that only architecturally defined. Lucie Šmardová
