Jan Nálevka

Jan Nálevka was born in 1976 in Jablonec nad Nisou, now he lives and works in Prague. Jan Nálevka is known for his aesthetically sober conceptual works operating with the visual language of geometric art and minimalism. His programme, however, is not based on his admiration for elegant geometric combinatorics or visual extremism of the monochrome but rather on the possibility of evoking the problem of emptiness, system and systemization by means of geometric and minimalist forms. He often uses prefabricated standardized wholes as his source material to create various formulations of “emptiness” either as such or by means of a clearly defined working process.
