I’ve always been attracted to the idea of keeping a journal, but I’ve never been able to keep it regular. Recently, however, I publicly realized that when I look back at my paintings, I remember what I was just experiencing and that I have been creating a diary for quite a long time – but still only mine.
Usually, when I go to do something, I do ten other things before I get to the originally intended activity. I’m very easily distracted and being distracted is part of everyday life. It’s different when creating – I can forget time, calm my thoughts, enjoy colors and use them to write my diary.
Tereza Kotek was born on November 11, 1983 in Bohemia
She spent her childhood and part of her youth in Denmark. She studied English at the University of Ústí nad Labem.
Despite the expressiveness and authenticity of his handwriting, he has no artistic education and is a self-taught painter. He paints on large-format canvases using a unique technique – a combination of acrylic paints, sprays and wax pastels. The use of soft brushstrokes together with strong spatula marks, expressive and bold color, evoke emotions in everyone.
A substantial part of the author’s work consists of female portraits of this area, which is almost unsettling. Although he always captures concrete, clearly recognizable objects in his paintings, the use of partial abstraction creates the feeling that they do not quite belong in our world.
