Zdeněk Trs

Zdenek Trs

* 1985, Liberec

After finishing the Secondary school of applied arts in Jablonec nad Nisou he entered Prof. Vladimír Kopecký’s studio of glass at the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague, in 2004. Between 2007 and 2010 he continued his studies at the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague in Prof. Zdeněk Beran’s studio of classical painting techniques.

Zdeněk Trs concentrates mainly on painting. He examines natural laws and relations on both microscopic and macroscopic scales. His works are based on reality and they also use the language of geometry as a tool which enables him to form the final shape. He is remarkable for a particular sense of composition, a certain contemplative layer, present in his paintings, and a pulsing content. His works are represented in the collections of the National Gallery in Prague and in private collections in the Czech Republic and abroad.

Artist's Statement

Hou much or how little to express...
„ ...From the state of latent existence to a kind of invocation, where I, as an observer, choose where I will direct my attention. It is movement in an information field, in which forms might be present. And their presence cast a shadow. On its boundary, the boundary between shadow and light, the essence of a shape becomes apparent. Like when the sun hits mother-of-pearl and reveals the whole range of colours in the spectrum... „
