The story of this painting began by not coincidently listening to an interview with a Youtuber called „Kovy“. I had no idea who he was, but for some reason, this interview showed up on the TV screen and since the first minute started, I was excited about his personal story and the wide overview of this young boy.
In the next phase of this painting’s evolution, we got to my most favorite subject – womanhood and the stories of women. This leads me to the far history of destinies of Joan of Arc, Grace O’Malley, Boudice…, this topic is then closed by my friend Katerina, which is literally blowing me away with her womanhood. She invited me for a horse ride and the experience from it had closed the emotion of the painting.
I can’t paint horses so I “poured” him my own way on the canvas and because at one point he looked like a prehistoric horse, to avoid possible misinterpretations I wrote there the word “kůň” which means “horse”
In the end I perceive this plaiting as a symbolism of meeting – far history with far future – circles in circles. We are coming back, we are like ducklings that are spinning. We are spinning forward and backward and when the rotation stops us, we are finally “here and now”.
