ARTISTS STATEMENT
The abundance of shape and color in Ida Kvetny’s works may seem abstract at the first glance. Looking closer you will find a vividly detailed multitude of strange and magic figures all with their own story to tell. The wide variety of painting techniques and the seemingly limitless sources of inspiration such as old school video games and oriental carpets all create a psychedelic effect in the pieces.

The dreamlike universe of Kvetny’s works have no obvious beginning nor end. It is up to the viewer to decipher the simultaneously abstract and figurative landscapes. The works constantly reveal something new exploding with intense color and form like an endless flow of energy.
