Jiří Černický is proof that painting, today, can be approached in a lively and innovative way that brings interesting results. Černický's work is full of creative transformations, extreme gestures and peculiar humor. In each of his works lies a strong story in level of content, but also on a level of finding adequate means of expression. He creates as if in phases – strong conceptual installations alternate with the seemingly lightweight and aesthetically painting projects.
