Artwork description

A fury of deep red seeps across the canvas in the form of an abstract flower, complete with small oblations mimicking eyes, brows and a nose that appears as if smoke billows out from within. The vulnerability and fragility of the natural world is being expressed here by Bukovcakova through this angry and delicate flower. The outline of the petals is rendered delicately, evoking the velvet touch of a flower like a rose, which heightens the emotional power of this image with its ability to appeal to several senses. This flower is abstracted into a natural object with feelings and a soul. The sharp blades of green grass in the foreground of the canvas appear spikey and unwelcoming, validating the anxiety and anger expressed by the central object. Bukovcakova strives to represent moments of ‘reassessment’ in a world filled with anxiety about the future. 

Kristina Bukovcakova

Kristina Bukovcakova is a Slovakian artist working and living in Bratislava, Slovakia.  

She studied the Academy of Arts in Bánska Bystrica first, and then she completed her Master’s degree at the Academy of Arts, Architecture, and Design in Prague. She only works in painting medium, which often results in large-scale abstract paintings with a recognizable natural element. In her work, Bukovcakova meanly deals with the relationship of man and nature. Her main subject of matter is landscape, environment, humanity. She is concerned about global environmental problems such as climate change while bound to a romanticized idea of our nature. Her paintings become expressive depictions of her emotions, feelings, and anxieties associated with global environmental problems.
