Kučera, Zdeněk / Reconstruction
acrylic, canvas, 60 × 60 cm
This painting, dating from Kučera’s late creative period, shows his sophisticated handling of geometric forms, which served as a rational basis for a composition in which he explored unexpected spatial relationships, colours and materials. These optical games, which create illusory combinations and variations of shapes, are paradoxically rooted in precise geometric forms. The creation of tension between clear structural basic elements and open-ended options for reading the resultant shapes is a symptomatic feature of Kučera’s oeuvre.
