Hidden grace of black stories

Lucia Tallová
Hidden grace of black stories

The exhibition “Hidden Grace in Black Tales” refers to familiar storytelling using the medium of painting. The artist combines two otherwise difficult to reconcile visible experiences: impersonal products of industrial society with the ethereal dreamy landscapes. The fragment of everyday reality is absorbed by the seemingly empty environment, full of fog, steam and the fine, decorative grid. Objects represented in images appear (or sink into) the empty space of the canvas. Abstract areas are the bearer of the conflict between minimal intervention and excessive decoration. The combination of lace ornamentation, the representation of femininity and softness with the seemingly abandoned cold subjects creates an interesting contrast. This connection creates an intense atmosphere of something already anticipated, threatening, but at the same time calm.

Lucia Tallova paints large-format cityscapes with finely nuanced atmospheres and colors. Heaven, country, city in their various facets, perceived as idyll or threat, characterize the field of tension in painting. The works with their enormous expanse shed a critical light on the aspect of beauty, the vastness of the world. Tallova's series are impressive snapshots of modern landscape painting in an urban setting.
