A painted picture can be many things, but it is always above all a scene in which colours, shapes and hints of the material world play out their stories in front of us. Within the confines of the four edges of a traditional rectangular painting, each such element is actually given infinite freedom, even if it is also their prisoner. The same is true of the figures that form the basis of Jana Vojnárová’s simultaneously figurative and abstract work. The world of female figures gently playing out their physicality in the intimate spaces of her paintings is at the same time a delicate dance between personal spaces and their revelation to the viewer.
