Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

Magenta painting is one from the project “3:1”. For this painting I am questioning Magenta shade. How exactly Magenta is looking? One shade, five different brands. Each painting is possible to combine with other paintings from project “3:1” and make site specific installation.

Artist Profile

Born: 1993

Hometown: Ostrava

Based in: Poznań

In Bureš´s works there is always the impression of the space. Not integrating space as a part of an illusion but also considering the space as a working area. Work is always at the edge somewhere between sculpture or object and painting. Somewhere between two and three dimensions. There is a direct relationship in between his works and his point of view on selected theme. In his early works he worked with his congenital visual defect, where some of the colors just simply disappear. In other words, an attempt to liberate colors. In later works, more specifically in monochromatic paintings, we see his questioning colors. Is this particular shade as it appears what is described to be? But the works are not only questioning the color perception. The space, the algorithm and math. Where in project “3:1” he works with a proportion which might be to key. Nor the question, nor the answer. Very basic key where everything else is coming from. 3:1 as an algorithm is transformed into painting, drawing, objects, game or installations. This project is the question rather than the answer.

There is a myth that Einstein and Picasso met in Paris in 1904. They were both asking questions about time and space. Picasso express himself through painting and sculpture, and Einstein through a mathematical theorem. They were both questioning the world around us, but doing so in the language they knew best.
