Zbyněk Sedlecký uses acrylic colors on canvas to create his compositions. His gestures are quick and his brushstrokes give life to rapidly changing cityscapes. The results look like a sketchbook and become an agile collection of transient thoughts. Sedlecký looks at the “process in time” itself, in which something becomes extinct in order for something new to be born.
Zbyněk Sedlecký (born 1976 in Ostrava, Czech Republic) lives and works in Prague, Czech Republic.

Her primary aim in the manipulation of a reference, pictorial or discursive, is to provide the spectator with an original affective reaction to it.
