SIX DEGREES OF SEPARATION 2021
Petr’s work is about surreal places, where ordinary rules of our society don’t have any use. These places reflect upon his dreams that sometimes he can control and sometimes cannot. Petr started to have these dreams after watching the Mad Max movie when he was a kid back in the 80’s. He was attracted to how each place is different, but they all have one thing in common; they are about survival when everything seems to be lost.
Petr likes to work with paints, photography and plaster. He combines materials such as wood, paper, plastic or metal, which make him scavenge for anything that seem to have some potential. Since the covid pandemic started his remote working place has been in a very small space, so he has had to scale down and perhaps it’s this new form of isolation that is also reflected in his recent works.
When we have limited resources, that’s when creativity kicks in.
These works are not about any political statement or agenda. It’s quite the opposite and Petr would like to offer to the observer a little space to drift and free the mind of all the entropy that surrounds us every day and take a rest in these makeshift shelters for a while, where time does not matter; where nothing really matters.
