Miroslav Brižis

The combination of size, relief, geometric shapes unfolding in an organic way, and darkened shadows moving forward from a unknown environment set the paintings of Brižis apart. Brižis paints with oil on wood, and the larger works are heavy both in physical and emotional weight.

Compositions based upon nature are easily identified in Brižis' paintings, but the gifts Brižis gives us are the profound and stirring emotions painted within things that we all know so well. A picturesque meadow, aside from being beautifully painted, holds mystery and melancholy within each grey shadow and grainy texture. A house is transformed from a simple rectangle to a beloved symbol standing for a structure we love.
