Ondrej Zimka Representing Slovakia
Ondrej Zimka was born in Slovakia in 1937.
"Zimka is an artist with a gift of apprehending and envisioning in limitless, epic and poetic terms, a world in which the most diverse spaces, recollections, illusions, perspectives, sensibilities, facts, and fabrication overlap. It is a gift most in evidence in the enchanting paintings he executes on wooden boards of all sizes, and even on stones."
"For Ondrej Zimk's works, life and fantasy, reality and imagination are typical. Self inherently combines elements seemingly unrelated, such as the folk elements of the past with an unsuspected future, " explains curator of the art exhibition Pavlína Buchová.
