Past exhibitions

Aleš Veselý – Drawings by painting (Catalogue)

Exhibition is focused very specifically on large-size “drawings by painting” up to 2.2 x 5 meters from the first half of the 80th years. There are expressive paintings on canvas or on paper, produced by various non-traditional techniques. The total number of exhibited works is about 20 pieces. The works come from the author’s deposits and loans from Museum Kampa – Foundation of Jan and Meda Mládek. Aleš Veselý is one of the most prominent personalities of the Czech art scene from the first half of 60 years untill now. Nevertheless, he is especially great sculptor, also deals with drawing, painting, graphics or creating environmental projects. All his works have something common – an incredible energy which is fueled by a desire for monumentality.In his works he deals with man’s relationship to society, nature and the universe. He deals with issues of order and chaos, space exploration, balancing forces by strokes, tension, pressure.

Zlámal exhibition (Catalogue)

designed exclusively for Veteran Arena, was the first and last opportunity to show work of the Zlámal family-three generations of painters. The exhibition included not only paintings but also drawings and preparatory studies. The exhibition presented the creation from 40s years to the present. All presented works were sold. Zlamal Wilhelm (1915-1995) was spiritually and linguistically anchored mainly in the German cultural tradition, he painted mostly landscapes but really interesting was also his portraiture and figurative work in which he at the end of life touched the term of ‘absolute light. “Zlamal Petr (1949) tends, unlike his father in recent years to intensity of expression and  to the explosive or “minor” color, revealing his emotions and psychological sense and excitement of painting. He also like his father combines a unique unusual light in his work.Josef Zlamal (1983) continues the family tradition. In his work on canvases and on paper he wants to get immediate feedback, whether positive or negative reaction and sometimes until shock of ugliness. Zlamal exhibition was evaluated as the most interesting exhibition of the year 2011 in the Veteran Arena gallery
