Břetislav Malý

Břetislav Malý undoubtedly explores the medium of painting with an utmost intensity. Reflecting painting itself has got its great tradition, be it the awareness of colors and their imanent dispositions, compositional schemes, or the painterly technique itself. Nevertheless, these activities were always intertwined with themes, motifs - with iconographic reasons for painting. In a number of cases, artists were close to a complex, nearly scientific research; pioneers of abstraction are a case in point as far as colors are concerned.
