Šimon Kučera belongs to the emerging generation of geometric painters, a relative niche in the Slovak art landscape. In his program, he actively analyzes basic means of expression such as light, color, form and optical illusion. The exhibition project brings the current state of the art closer to the general public and points out new approaches and ways of presenting abstract geometry.

With the presented works, the author demarcates himself from the classic depiction and presents a new unconventional way in which the painting anchors on special atypical frames. By looking for a new approach, a new way of presenting painting, he pushes its physical limitations and blurs the boundaries between painting and design. The result is a series of uniquely expressive quality and irrepressible energy. With their dynamism and conceptualization of abstract language, the works suggest movement and recall a kind of natural phenomena that came here from the digital environment, freed from the traditional way of building composition. With the wavy composition, the author refers to the complexity of the space “behind the screen”. It is a space full of curves, horizons and areas that are invisible and unattainable for most of us.

Šimon Kučera /*1996/ An alumni of VŠVU Bratislava, he was a member of 4th atelier mentored by prof. Ivan Csudai. During his studies at the Academy of Fine Arts, he went through various visual representations of his themes, but in the end he settled his style and emphasized it in the language of geometric abstraction. He looks for inspiration in the digital environment, which he thinks is important part of our existence. He focuses mainly on the composition, color, shape and optical illusion, which form the basis of his work. He constantly transforms these means of expression into new display options. He actively participates in group and individual exhibitions. He currently lives and works in Bratislava.
