Vlasta Smola | Chicago, IL
Beauty is the main reason and purpose for my art. I spare no obstacle in both challenging and expressing the power and mystery of beauty.
My favorite media are acrylics and watercolor. The subject matter are birds in their real or mythological interaction with the human universe. I strive to depict the dualistic nature of reality, conscious and subconscious states of the mind, and to create examples of modern mythology. My paintings explore a dream-conscious state in order to increase a depth of perception and to develop a poetic world view.
