Měsíc, co vycházejíc tmavne (Rising Moon Becomes Darker), felt-tip pen on paper, 84 × 70 cm, 2020
2020's lockdown gave me an unexpected opportunity to revisit abandoned ideas and to continue the work on unfinished projects. Some years ago I was working on series of drawings with which I tried to overcome my inclination to pure abstract art, choosing the moon as its subject. The moon is so fascinating to me, and not only for the celestial spectacle which is offering to us or for its symbolic values. For me it is also very apt subject for my development from abstract to realism - its shape is a simple basic geometrical figure, yet with very peculiar and characteristic ,face'. The drawings are made with dozens of black felt-tip pens which are gradually loosing color intensity and thus creating a shading.
