Curator's word

The artworks of Ondřej Konupčík and Radim Kašpárek are unprecedented in the 21st century due to their unconventional look and technological preparation through manual creation. The authors are among a handful of creators who, despite the evolving overlap with modern technology, were not afraid to stay within the analog spirit and develop their own authors’ manuscript. Despite the organic abstractions, their works raise many questions, a creative story and encourage a closer relationship between the work and the viewer. Abstraction itself is a form of knowledge that arises in the authors as an interplay of thought creation, which is unseen in the world of art, as artistic creation mostly presents the author’s work of the individual. Therefore, the interplay of both authors is an unprecedented encounter on the canvas in their mutual visual complement. Emotional abstract maps put the viewer in a situation where he uses his own cognitive thinking and imagination. The authors are among the creators who do not only work with the theme but have created their own technological process, which is inimitable and created by painting on the water surface.

This technological process requires its skill and is irreparable. Together in their elementary abstraction, they do not have the possibility of going back or partial repair, so they master their work perfectly and stand out in the field of contemporary artistic pop - up culture of the 21st century.
