Traces of a Landscape
Jan Jedlička: Stopy krajiny

The painter, photographer and experimental filmmaker Jan Jedlička lost the landscape of his youth. The political situation after 1968 forced him to leave Czechoslovakia. He settled down in Switzerland. Looking for a new inspiration, he fell in love with the flat landscape of Maremma region in Tuscany. He found his new artistic home there and, as an artist, he began from scratch. A characteristic feature of Jedlička’s works is earthiness. He collects colourful rocks and makes his own pigments of them that he uses in his paintings. Thus, the depicted landscape becomes a part of the picture through the pigments collected there. In today’s abundance of unlimited digital possibilities, he turns to the most archaic methods of capturing the world.
