Event Details

Hynek Martinec explores time, history, reality and spirituality both in paintings and drawings, often using vintage photographs and the Old Masters as his point of departure. “His macabre obsession with death and decay evokes the Prague mannerist court of Rudolph II, the bizarre paintings of Arcimboldo who was cherished there, and the modern Czech surrealism of Jan Svankmajer” (Jonathan Jones, The Guardian).

 

Parafin is showcasing new work, which will be part of a major solo exhibition at the National Gallery in Prague. Martinec was born in the Czech Republic in 1980, but lives and works in London.


Sigrún Davídsdóttir is a journalist, writer and broadcaster, based in London. Apart from being occupied with politics and economics Sigrún is a long-time observer of the London and international art scene. She has been interested in art and how artists work and think since her youth.
