The work by the artist Václav Řezáč reflects what is stored somewhere in the depth of soul. He does not seek inspiration on the surface of things but in what is hidden under the surface, inside the shape, what is not seen by naked eye, but a man senses through emotions, feelings and heart. Rather than the surface, Václav is interested in the relationship between two subjects/objects, between colors, between various shapes, relations in nature, relations between cultures, between light and darkness, between good and evil, between man and God.
