I fell through the waterfall by flash and cut the surface with living flow line.
So Dipper, which appeared for a moment to the end of the walking  through the Javoří creek in the Giant mountains, told me.

It was a moment so full of elusive image of beauty and bewitching words.

Thus, images are born, which are not only a message, which anyone should be excited about. They are fragments of a living presence.

An … extensive set of realizations in landscape is represented by various types of actions, characterized by a distinctive mutability over the course of time. These activities and happenings react in some way upon the environment, either with the help of other materials, or merely by the physical presence of the actor. A substantial group of these works deal with the themes of travelling and eventually, wandering. Both of these themes were already being explored and documented by Miloš Šejn in the second half of the 60's, in his early works… Walking, with its motor characteristics, is the most elementary activity of a body possible in nature – it can be organized "from somewhere to somewhere", and we can understand this demarcation as a spatial sculpture sui generis. Wandering carries other meanings, mainly the aspect of its unintentional ness, but also the quality of the actor’s existential jeopardy, which is to say the solitary actor. That can be encompassed in a walk under extreme conditions and through difficult terrain…

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 -
