Kristýna Šormová The works of the young painter Kristýna Šormová are closely linked to her inner experience of the landscape. Kristina was awarded with the Critics’ Gallery price (2013) and showed her paintings for exemple at Prague’s Nová Galerie (2015). Some of her abstract paintings were made under the impression of her travels to England, Japan, Israel or Peru. She absorbs structure, horizons, atmospheric phenomenons, light and the forces of nature. She builds a kind of inner index, or albums of her experience which come spontaneously to the surface in moments of creation. Although Kristýna chooses to visit foreign countries, she always comes back to places that influenced her during her childhood and to which she still feels related. The familiar places that give her a feeling of home – the place where she belongs.
