The term "painting" is feminine, which is why Trafo Gallery chose the name of the exhibition of the youngest Czech painting by recent AVU graduates with the words HER painting. It outlines the generation statement of eleven budding authors, born in the 90s and entering the art scene right now. Most of the selected works move in the interface between personal touching of the world, including the private, sometimes intimate sphere of life, and between the search for expression for hard-to-name emotions, material and social conditions. An essential moment here is the specifically feminine way of sensitivity and criticality, which makes the area of personal experience present against the background of recurring – mundane and extraordinary – rituals and dramas. The statement line of the clash between life assumptions and actual reality is very stimulating.
