Robert Salanda

Robert Salanda was born in 1976, Olomouc, Czech Republic, he currently lives and works in Prague. He studied at Facultad de Bellas Artes Cuenca in 2000, and he graduated in 2002 from the Academy of Fine Arts Prague. Robert Salanda views the medium of painting as an open platform to be freely analysed, its structure examined in detail, and its boundaries crossed in diverse directions. The basic thesis of his expressive experimentation is based upon the consistent freeing of the image from layers of sedimentation and the weight of individual communication – at the same time in constant reference to the otherness and mutability of forms and perceptions. Emphasis is laid on the uniqueness of visual elements, creating an integrity or disintegrity of the pictorial surface, which then reciprocally revises conventional perception, calling into question the fixed schemata of human perception.
