Water is a significant phenomenon in Milos Šejn's work. Appears almost everywhere. Even the Sun Mountain was built above the stream flowing through it. In MUO / OLOMOUC MUSEUM OF ART – Theatre of Music you can see it on the long white wall in the hall (drawing, writing, painting), water framed and hanging, and a video stream flowing in the foyer.

Right from the water spring
The body of waters bites downwardly there
Where it roots in the deepest subsoil and
Turns its multiple eyes upward
Between grass and trees into the light
From where it was born.
Its being is becoming a shape
And its limbs growing through soil
In the endless folds
Always open embrace for seeing, speaking,
Finger printings and tracks of incoming
For touches the mouth of all beings
On the water surface.
We are also bodies of water
Seemingly break away from this immensity.

Visually symbolic game looking across artistic positions and directions of symbolism of flowers, growth, biological or purely transcendental, explicit or just imagined, as a latent, marginal or, conversely, developed and bearing theme appearing in the works of a number of well-known or lesser-known 20th century authors follows the exhibition "Flowers of Desire and Evil", which took place in 2017 at the GMU in Hradec Králové. The project for the spaces of the House of Jonáš uniquely links the rich collections of three nearby institutions: The Gallery of Modern Art in Hradec Králové, the Central Bohemian Gallery in Kutná Hora and the East Bohemian Gallery in Pardubice. The cooperation of three major collections allows the story to unfold show significantly greater breadth and depth, but at the same time it is also a probe into the nature and composition of these funds, dipping deep into the secrets locked depositories and collection acquisitions mined over several very different decade of the 20th and beginning of the 21st century. The exhibition at the symbolic level lends its title from one of the late pastels in the region anchored fine art mystic Karel Malich.

I desire for a long time -
to paint wild roses
(which are yellow and red).
I went through every gardens and I found nothing!!!

Art Space Ecology: Two Views--Twenty Interviews embraces the international context of today’s art making and, through the medium of interviews, encourages readers to engage directly with nature-focused creators and their artistic processes. The twenty artists, though diverse in backgrounds and methods, all produce works that are either embedded in the environment or that document our ever-changing landscapes. In these interviews, Grande explores the motivations that inspire artists to use the natural world as their canvas and how their works explore the intersections of art, space, and the environment, raising questions about our relationship with the landscapes themselves. An engaging introduction by Edward Lucie-Smith, English writer, poet, art critic, curator and broadcaster, sets the stage for these artists to share about the artistic processes of their works.
