030508: Wannieck Gallery: Barbara Höller - Systémy, Petr Kvicala - Waves

Shrinking possibilities An overview of Barbara Höller’s work dating from the middle of the 90’s is currently being shown in the amazing rooms of the Wannieck Gallery in Brno, an old factory hall. Her exhibited oeuvre also includes works that are either new or have not been on display for many years. Such as her early orthogonal structured plywood pieces. Even her most recent series “Sack” focuses on the relationship between an image and its supporting medium: unfolded garbage bags are used as a temporary support and covered with thick layers of paint, which, after they have dried, are peeled off and are draped like a curtain over a new, stable support. This shrinking process develops innate, moving structures, which are not predictable and hardly controllable. In the end, creation is always a game between controllable factors and those that cannot be influenced. While Barbara Höllers work is shown in the “Galerie auf der Brücke” (Gallery on the bridge), a platform next to the old crane, Petr Kvicala’s (born 1960 in Brno) comprehensive retropsective "Waves" of WPop and Op Art influenced pieces dating back to 1984, is displayed on the much larger ground floor of the factory. His work is remarkable – especially when Op Art compositions, which remind of children’s sketches, are reduced to delicate horizontal lined structures with a great distance between each other, and a basic system of order can only develop upon closer inspection.
