Adriena ŠimotováBorn August 6 1926, Prague
Died May 19 2014, Prague
A distinctive representative of Czech fine arts from the 2nd half of the 20th century. Her work was strongly influenced by her own life and the loss of her closest family members. With her sensitive touch she formed paper and textile, and created collages and installations which lyrically dealt with human corporeality and the existential transience of being, things, and relationships. Through the increasing metaphysical dimension of her works she introduced a very sensitive form of dialogue, directed to the very depths of the inner self.
