The definition of one's own environment within the framework of the conventional understanding of painting is essential in the work of Lucie Hošková, who is currently studying at the Drawing Studio (Alice Nikitová School) at the AVU in Prague. She works with composted canvas that has been buried in the ground for several months. However, for the author, the canvas is not a continuous and unchanging platform. She stitches its fragments together so that the substrate itself is part of the painting. Hošková paints stitches, watercolors, charcoal, and clay, which are imprinted on the canvas over time. Gesture and statement are essential denominators for the author. Grafts of extreme life events, injuries, caused by an involuntary arrival in this world, as well as a free choice to end the stay in it, are combined on the canvas. Torn records reveal messages from the ancient past about the difficult world that once was here, echoes of which hit our minds. Death and life intertwine in such a way that sometimes one area stands in for the other.
