The Seeing


Jan Karpíšek: The Seeing, acryl on canvas, 70x80 cm, 2008

"The Seeing" was inspired by a vision behind the closed eyes. Author interpretes that the Eye is a Consciousness in a wild world. By the way, the lower part of the canvas looks similar to some paintings by A.R.Penck.

A call from +234**********

Warning for all artists!

If you receive a call from phone number starting with +234 be very careful. It's most probably a Nigerian scammer calling. Don't be happy that someone is "very interested" in your painting. Be aware!

The Magic True Service Tree


Jan Karpíšek: The Magic True Service Tree, acryl on canvas, 70x55, 2008

"The Magic True Service Tree" was painted for anniversary exhibition "Horizontal and the Banana" at opportunity of 15 years of FaVU in The Reduta Theatre (10.10.2008). The Witty Pear entered the painting absolutely incidentally. This work of art is enlargement of a spontaneous drawing which describes only spiritual practice, turning all the senses inside, calming the mind and awareness of this and that. The exogenous powers could have sudden impact on one's life. But are they truly extraneous?!
