MgA. Lenka Stejskalová Skoumalová Dis.Art

*3.5. 1978 Svitavy CZ

Artist and University teacher graduated from Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague – the Glass Studio as well as from the Drawing Program of Academy of Fine Art in Krakow and in Granada, Spain. She engages in free art and marginally in design. Her works origin always in colour-limited drawings. In her installations she reflects the movements and light transformations of the space, the smaller art works are approached with sculptural methods, sometime in combination with other materials. The essential theme of her art is the clash between geometry and organic forms, their mutual relations and tensions.
