Jakub Špaňhel | Svatý Jan pod Skalou

08/12/2017 - 11/01/2018

The work of Jakub Špaňhel could be roughly divided into two markedly different areas linked by shared characteristics, such as a propensity for monochrome and formal reduction or primary emphasis on painting quality. The canvases are based on a depiction of a specific motif in its typical gestural style. The second group of paintings has a minimalist-serial character relying on a mechanical repetition of simple elements using a paint roller, e.g. “flowerpots”, crosses, pints or sailboats.
