About Václav Girsa
If you see a puma, don’t smoke. Art is in order Václav Girsa’s second career. Although the content of his often expressive work is unique, the influence of his AVU professors, of Vladimír Skrepl and Jiří Kovanda, can be detected. Everything depicted had to first somehow enter the artist’s life, including various objects that he didn’t specifically seek, but just happens upon and, in relation to the event, adds them to his pictures. Art’s close link to life is essential for the creation of a work of art and the reason for his existence. This leads to a certain directness of content, which does not mean, however, that the artist worked with spur-of-the-moment ideas, but that he intentionally avoids a rational complication of the subject.
