Jiří Suchý – Solo Exhibition
Exhibition date: February 2019 – May 2019
This solo exhibition featured glass sculptures and paintings by the Czech artist Jiří Suchý. The artist attended the glass school in Nový Bor and then went on to study at the Academy of Art, Architecture and Design in Prague under the internationally renowned Czech architect, furniture designer and glass artist Prof. Bořek Šípek. Jiří Suchý’s glass objects, which are melted in moulds in the kiln, follow classical Czech glass sculpture in their design language. In his compositions he works with displacements of geometric objects, layering and blending them. By contrast, his paintings, which he creates using hot glass taken directly from the glass kiln applying his own specially developed technique, are expressive/abstract.
