Local artist Frantisek Strouhal’s piece titled Innocence

Local artist’s piece is half painting, half photography

West Kootenay artist Frantisek Strouhal has had a piece chosen for new Federation of Canadian Artists show.

The Federation of Canadian Artists juried a West Kootenay artist, Frantisek Strouhal, into the show Works on Paper in February of 2014 with the artwork titled Innocence.

Now, Strouhal has been chosen into another FCA show Landscapes with his work titled There is no Landscape without the Human I.

Strouhal provides a unique perspective and style in his figurative artworks. He uses photography, digital collage, contact printing and lithographic inks on watercolor paper.

Half painting, half photography his complex works are considered to be voluptuous, sensualized realizations of colour, light, and form.

The artist said his work is a reflection of his own personal renaissance; in an age where everything is driven by technology, he resorts back to antiquated methods that give much more feeling and depth to his work.

He is the owner of Mirage Studio in Valican, where he spends most of his time creating new art pieces.

His works are in many private collections, and have been featured in numerous juried and invitational exhibitions internationally.

You can view his artworks at www.frantisekstrouhal.com.
