"Frantisek Strouhal, through his layered descriptions, his landscapes and portraits, encourages us to consider the “fugitive” immateriality of the world....The end result is a switching between different levels of reality, from the mundane to the exalted to the sublime and back." John Austin, Art critic based in Manhattan.
"The surreal quality of Frantisek's work is a treat to observe. The images I viewed offer a haunting appeal....yet the work presents a sense of peace at the same time." Brian Sherwin, Art critic, Editor of The Art Edge.
"Strouhal's subjects transcend their physical qualities and evoke an immediate visceral response in the viewer. They speak to us about the mysterious and complex human experience.....Figures seem to emerge from a surreal.dreamlike pool of warm sepia tones as if bathed or suspended in an ethereal vapor." Renee Phillips, Director of Manhattan Arts International.
"Frantisek Strouhal's work is dreamy and unhurried, like the romantic period his work reflects. You have to savor it slowly....like honey in Southern tea. The result is a seductive piece that asks fot that time back from the viewer. The painstaking craftmanship this technique requires brings a sense of intimacy to his art." Ashleigh Norman, Art advisor and Director of Content.
"Frantisek Strouhal of this list (Bromoil group), from the backwoods of British Columbia, and his lovely wife, Chantal, flew into Richmond today... I viewed his portfolio of about ten of his prints (all 11 x 14) tonight. They are undoudbtly among the very best that I have ever seen, vintage or modern!" Gene Laughter, Bromoil master, teacher and art collector.
“Thanks for the print. It is stunning, and will be quite the conversation piece! It is just amazing how it is so true what Frantisek said...after looking at it for a while it takes on a different feel for the art. Wonderful!” Scott Mckinnon, Producer/Director at KSPS, Spokane public TV.
