Artwork description

‘Marinas Daynights’ displays the bookends of summer near the ocean, the before and after of the high season when crowds are at a minimum, temperatures are cool and, for Cvik, frolicking at sea with local friends is at its peak. Summers spent in Greece meant a change of scenery coming from the inland Slovakia, and this meant more experiences and memories to pull from onto the canvas. Cvik’s process of ‘painting as thinking’ allows him to replace the images and emotions in his head onto his works. The colors in the painting are mixed in a way that conveys the cold air and also the prime weather of the Indian Summer. Just as the marina is the start and the end of a journey, it represents the beginning and the end of summer as well.

Petr Cvik

Peter Cvik is an artist living and working in Bratislava, Slovakia. Cvik earned his BA, MA and PhD at the Academy of Fine Art and Design in Bratislava. Since 2013 he has participated in a number of group shows as well as exhibited his own solo shows in Slovakia, Russia and Austria. He was an artist in residence in Paris, France and Liepzig, Germany.

Cvik’s works have been characterized by new media and architecture as their core structures. Though, in his recent works, Cvik creates completely physical images, similar to photography or sketches, and begins to fully rely on his mind and memory. He transmits his virtual impressions of various landscapes from his travels onto the canvas. When the image is about to become too detailed, he intervenes by deconstructing it with lines and strokes, thus creating an entirely new painterly language. The final composition then appears like abstract geometry charged with emotions. Blurred and distorted images of landscapes, that almost seem in movement and create the sense of a fleeting moment, are what make Cvik’s works so compelling.
