Zdenek Lhotsky: Drawings & Glass
29 March, 2017 - 24 April, 2017
Zdenek Lhotsky is an internationally renowned artist – painter and sculptor specializing in glass. His work has appeared in over 240 exhibitions in Europe, the US, the Gulf and Asia-Pacific; he has won numerous prizes and is a recipient of the Bavaria/Germany State Award.
Lhotsky exclusively follows his own personal visual norm, characterized by very orthodox civilian forms, with geometric or ornamental features. As a founding member of the Tvrdohlavi (The Stubborn), he has always positioned himself in opposition to rigid social norms and snob morality. During the 1980s he allied himself, whilst maintaining his independent approach, with the Czech Postmodernists who were then in revolt against the totalitarian regime, and whose work formed the milestones of Czech culture. He has completed commissions for prominent companies, institutions and private clients around the world, and has earned a global reputation for his architectural compositions. His oeuvre ranges from these large-scale works to small masterpieces the size of a human hand.
