About The Artwork

German Expressionism is one of the most recognisable styles of silent cinema, although it can sometimes be slippery to define. Expressionism is an artistic mode that first appeared in poetry and the visual arts at the beginning of the 20th century, before moving into fields such as theatre, architecture and cinema following the First World War. Offering a subjective representation of the world, Expressionism descends partly from German Romanticism and reveals the angst of its human figures through their distorted, nightmarish surroundings.

Aleš Brázdil (born, 1983) has during the years 2003 – 2009 in the Academy of fine arts in Prague studied at the Atelier for Classical Painting Prof. Zdeněk Beran. Aleš Brázdil points his superfically figurative painting towards one moment in time; he abstract the picturesque and situational erotic locus. Through direct eye contact or the open body language the viewer is inevitably made into a voyeur of the intimate situation. Brázdil uses the medium of classical paintings to bring computer –generated images of his design on the canvas. The asiring metaphors are able to produce a surreal picture world whose frozen moment is broken down by the titles of the pictures on their placards. The name of his image as a „whore“ pushes the critical observer inevitably to a sexually themed discourse. Through the abstraction of the subject’s physicality it becomes generalized and is taken out of the context of the perceptible proscenium – like situation on to a theoretical – discursive level. „Provocation“ turns here to a creed, whose general outcome agrese with the spaces between „ Legs“ and „Sex“ . The reduced colouration emphasises suggestively the mental expressiveness of the works.
