„Krajina je neuronová síť, ve které se vynořují a zapadají jednotlivé body, vztahy mezi body někdy mizí, ale jindy jen dlouze spí a neví se, zda je někdy něco či někdo probudí.“
Václav Cílek, Krajiny vnitřní a vnější
Earth is the cornerstone in the formation of many people's stories. It binds itself to memories, events, evokes various feelings such as fear or admiration. The photograph allows me to see the country I am currently watching. Often, however, I do not observe the country sufficiently, so I can postpone it for later. Time is running everything is changing and I pick a photo of a country that no longer exists. I'm only starting to explore it now. What did I miss? What did I not notice?
But I have to ask myself: What am I actually researching? This is not a country where I can look under a stone - it is a photograph. It is a set of pixels / it is a converted landscape. So I am interested in another aspect. I am interested to study not only the content but also the object itself.
For some time I have been dealing with the technique of gum printing as a way to convert digital photography into a photo object. In the process of creating a positive image, I create different color layers that create a fine relief, somewhere overlapping, somewhere not. Thus the technique itself creates its own valleys and plains, rivers and fields, trees and meadows, deserts and seas.
