2008 to 2018.

108. VODŇANY

 I did a small painting of an old bridge in Vodňany: this was the starting point. I made 7 paintings that reflected different aspects. The problem was to get them to work individually and together, so whilst I had finished versions done within a year, they did not work together and frankly some were not good enough. After 5 years at an exhibition in Czech Republic in 2013 I was content with what I saw on the wall.

111. OSSIAS FOR DANCING

I took a small part of one painting from ‘Vodňany’ to make the first Ossia. The material is in 5 to 9 layers, by changing the order of these layers I developed 14 new paintings!

112. IDEAL LANDSCAPES

Tributes to the classical landscape tradition of Poussin.

113. OKRAJ LESA

 These paintings were all painted on a path along the edge of a forest, all produced not far from each other. Whilst I gave myself considerable licence to get the atmosphere and structure I wanted, you would still probably recognise the exact spot.

114. ECHOING PATHS

 Echoing Path (Cesta s odrazy) and In Memoriam Luboš are both tributes to my friend Luboš, who died in 2014.
