Artwork description

‘Summer Haze’ depicts the artist’s own balcony through a geometric landscape combined with colors that convey the memory of a warm summer night. The lack of any sharp lines together with the inspiration from the colors of the season emanate the calmness, or the haze, that lingers after rain. A sense of contrast between the heat of the summer and the freshness in the air can be pondered while swaying on the hammock. While thoughts wander in his head, Cvik shifts them into visual inspirations and ventures on a mental process that eventually turns into paint on canvas. Experiences and travels hence become the memories and inspiration for his work ‘Summer Haze,’ which in turn continues a cycle of motivation to create and be productive through the hot days.

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.
