Matěj Lipavský

"I am interested in light - it is the leitmotiv of my work across all medias. I am only trying to come near to my inner ideas about the landscape of my childhood… Painting is my primary antenna. I paint in plain air to be constantly in contact with the casualness of reality. My life is a circulation of love - from nature to painting and vice versa."
