about my art

hOOP

My work is a form of abstract realism. There’s no rigidity in my paintings. Straight lines are replaced with squiggles, hard shapes are replaced by splatter. I’m just as likely to use my fingers or a marker to paint as I am to use a brush.

But there is form to this chaos, a technique driving this madness, and the end results are surprisingly figurative. My art doesn’t reproduce life, My art re:introduces it. MY WAY. My play.

My work is a form of abstract realism. There’s no rigidity in my paintings. Straight lines are replaced with squiggles, hard shapes are replaced by splatter. I’m just as likely to use my fingers or a marker to paint as I am to use a brush. But there is form to this chaos, a technique driving this madness, and the end result is a surprisingly realistic depiction of life. My art doesn’t reproduce life, trying to turn a canvas into a photograph. It recreates life, building something that can only be found in my work, showing you the way I see the world. My paintings are a different reality than the one you may see, but they’re just as true.

andddd vreeeeeeeeeeeeeeew to the artist statement

I paint with the intent of poking my audience to explore their inner resources. Reveal one’s own narrative a bit more. That’s why mythology and symbolism are central to my work. The several layers of meaning – not only in the descriptive sense but also the floating, unspoken one. Aiming to leave the viewer a lot of space, yet still engage in my story, so it wants to play the game of interpretations and bring the overlapping dimensions into light. I believe it to be one of this refined, little, foxy moments where our understanding develops without us noticing it.

So i paint to poke. More people i poke, more fun. Easy, right?

hohlik [pronounced kooklik], didn’t make my name easier to pronounce, but seem obvious choice when i decided to use pseudonym. An impulsive kind of a Slavic trickster he was, and mischievous! Operating on a threshold, Beyond Good and Evil, were he’s absolute lack of judgment makes him unable to punish anybody, himself included. All his actions are ultimately neutral.
