Erika Pochybova Artist Bio:
I am inspired by life in general, but mostly by nature. I like to portray characters, symbols, and natural phenomena that coexist in a world of peace, harmony, and mutual consolation. Recently, I decided to expand my interpretation of what I see into an abstract composition. Majority of my paintings are complex, detailed, colorful, and chaotic, but people can find recognizable images within them inspired by nature and everyday life. My abstract pieces remove easily identifiable images. In my work, I strive to reflect my belief that I have about life: that one is often presented with random opportunities that can be developed into rich and beautiful experiences. In other (simple) words, life is what I make of it. ABOUT: Erika is well-known for her unique, signature style. In 2014, Erika expanded her creative expression by adding work in spontaneous, gestural abstraction. Among others, Erika’s story and her artwork were featured in the Slovakian national publication New Time Sunday, in the Creative Quarterly #13, #16 , #26 and #43 national publications, and in the winter issue of ARTNEWS Magazine. Erika has received many awards, including the Silver and Merit Award in a New York City based national competition, a second place award in the Texas National competition, the second place award in a Houston-based national competition Texas Art juried by Shelly Langdale, Curator of Prints and Drawings in the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Erika was 3-times selected as a finalist for the Hunting Art Prize, as well as for the national juried exhibition System Failure curated by Sarah Tanguy, an independent curator, arts writer & critic, and a curator for the Art in Embassies Program in Washington, DC. Erika was awarded a public art commission for the University Medical Center. The newest projects contain public art commissions by the Texas Tech University.
