Four artists convey the power of the human spirit Posted by Renee Phillips


See the whole article: FOUR ARTISTS CONVEY THE POWER OF THE HUMAN SPIRIT

In art it requires enormous discipline and many years of practice to master the human form. It is not enough to replicate the figure; it is important for artists to evoke thoughts and emotions — to transform viewers — through their art. Artists Rose Adare, Bren Sibilsky, Joanne St-Cyr and Frantisek Strouhal accomplish these tasks. In their own unique styles,  they convey powerful expressions about the human spirit. They have also acquired international recognition, honors and awards for their work.

Frantisek Strouhal

Frantisek Strouhal is a mixed media artist who is internationally admired for his unique body of work titled “Art Embracing Awareness.” The human form is essential to the Canadian artist who says it is “the most universal symbol of beauty that can stir and satisfy the mind and heart.”

In his art, figures seem to emerge from surreal, dreamlike pools of warm sepia tones as if bathed or suspended in an ethereal vapor.  He explains, “Light and texture play the important role of portraying the energy and strength which emanate from beneath the surface of the subjects.”

It takes Strouhal many hours to build up a depth of ink, layer by layer, and his choices of brushes, papers, and lithographic inks determine the outcome. He uses 19th century techniques and states, “The processes I use are slow but intense; the result is an image that asks for that time back from the viewer.”

Strouhal encourages viewers to contemplate and interact with his pieces in a peaceful manner. “My imagery is meant to serve as an oasis of tranquility, permanence and strength and to capture and highlight what is fundamental to our being and society.”

The artist was born in Moravia to a family of painters and artists. He has had many exhibitions in the United States and Canada, including the 2014-15 Federation of Canadian Artists Gallery in Vancouver. He is a recipient of the Gold Medal at the Rotary Centre of the Arts in Kelowna, B.C., and his art was selected for the Manhattan Arts International curated art exhibition “The Healing Power of ART,” 2015. He is a member of the Manhattan Arts International Featured Artists Program.
