Ivana Vostrakova Artist Bio:

Minimalist strong composition and clear lines are typical for Ivana Vostrakova's work. They apply mainly in the minimalist graphical shortcuts. They are, in some cases, moreover enriched by including new elements and then appeared in the new surprising contexts. Another important group of the artist's work consists of original photographic montages. Blending of perspectives, taking things and characters out of their usual context and combination of seemingly incompatible to create a completely new unexpected reality. The main part of Ivana Vostrakova’s work are without doubt Chimeras, in which she by using play of light and shadows materialize mysterious dream visions, faces and figures. Destructed structure is waking up to the phantoms, which we perceive as a simulated reality. Creates the illusion of mythical creatures that live in their own stories somewhere on the border of reality and dream. The seemingly illusive ghosts are in fact very real. We see their expressions, feelings, joy and pain.
