Klára started working on the 'Bizarre vacation' series during the covid-19 pandemic in 2020. At the time, Klára focused on the human subconscious and the landscape of human psyché where dreams come to life - and since it was impossible to travel elsewhere, why not travel in dreams? What would a typical sightseeing tour look like in our subconscious?
The paintings interconnect features of classical surrealism, pop surrealism and amply represent compositional games with formats and abstract work with linear or dimensional representations of animals, humans, and objects. Warm summer light and sharp shades (inspired by paintings of, i.e., Giorgio de Chirico) take us to seaside resorts and Mediterranean holiday destinations.
Additionally, Klára took the opportunity to utilize space and located site-specific installations during the Re/Creation exhibitions at Palladium in Prague.
Klára Sedlo (*1993) is a distinctive young art generation artist in Czechia. She became an outstanding and successful talent while studying at the Prague Academy of Fine Arts. After graduating, she rooted herself in her painting manuscript and established a firm stance in the Czech artistic scene.
Her exhibitions take place in Czechia and abroad (USA, Great Britain, Italy, Germany,...). Her work can also be seen in collections in the US, Europe, Japan, and Australia. In her pieces, she focuses on figurative painting. She enjoys exploring and depicting psychological conditions (her graduation work was dedicated to obsessive-compulsive disorder); however, she also utilizes elements of pop culture, kitsch, or classic horrors and humor. Although she works mainly with traditional two-dimensional paintings, her art commonly expands into site-specific installations, performances, or video art to present her visions in context and simultaneously show the complexity of the human inner world.
