Klára enjoys combining features of today's consumer society, horror, and deeper psychological topics. This tendency is most apparent in the 'Friends' series, where pop-surrealism blends with darker elements, creating paintings on the verge of kitsch art and darkness.
Klára herself comments on the series: "Stuffed animals with big eyes. At one point, they were everywhere to be seen - at tobacco shops, gas stations, supermarkets... and every toy store, of course. And so I thought, why do we as a society have the constant need to produce shinier and prettier objects? And not only toys, other things too! Is it because the sadness inside us is darker and darker, so we need more color, glitter, and sparkles around us to cover it?”
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.
