Jan Kovářík Kovářík
Jan Kovářík completed his studies at the Academy of Fine Arts in the Studio of Sculpture of Jindřich Zeithamml. He studied at Intermedial studio of professor Milan Knížák for two semesters. He has been exhibiting independently since 2002. His works are represented in the collection of the National Gallery and in private collections. He moves lightly and freely in the abstract morphology and loves to “dress“ his sculptures in sophisticated coloured or even optical art attire. Last year, he presented his works at the independent exhibition Statuofilia in the Topič House. The title of the exposition makes it clear that he is fully devoted to his art. He lives and works in Prague.
By giving mysterious names, Kovářík leaves the viewer in doubt what the matter actually is. He does
not like “typecasting”; he rather leaves room for your fantasy and experience. The sculpture is another part of as-yet-unfinished project. It is based on the knowledge of biomorphic shapes as if born from the swirling micro space of the Petri dish. Nothing is impossible and everything is seemingly allowed, but still within the strict limits of classical sculpture and rules of interior structure, form and proportions.
