Jakub Matuška aka Masker, 2013

Jakub Matuška aka Masker (1981)

Mysterious Universe, 2013, print on paper, 212 x 200 cm, edition 17 + VIII AP

Masker fills not only space within the space, but also stories into more stories; many are wild, grotesque absurd scenes that take place in different places together. References to social reality also reveal the artist’s distinct experience with older art, whether it is late medieval painting or the inter-war flow of German Expressionism. Masker often portrays himself and his loved ones in various situations where often tragic faces are in contrast to the comic positions of characters.
