PRESS RELEASE – George Kratochvil
In this new series of drawings by George Kratochvil, the outlines of characters, traced from various Persian miniature paintings, appear to have been confined, like ghosts of a deteriorated past, to an environment that surges with a relentless graphic motif. The onslaught of tiny shapes references various ornamental crafts such as tapestry, embroidery or mosaic. The elements that make up these ink drawings, have been described as being “diametrically opposed”, presenting a trypophilic surface of painstakingly hand drawn pattern work that might relish the meticulous and the reactionary, while, on the other hand revealing a suggestive enticement with the appropriated figures. The various elements are held within the same pictorial space, creating scenes of an unsettling tranquility.
