About Jitka Janíková
There are no upcoming events
Currently I am mostly engaged in oil painting. I am very happy and fortunate to live surrounded by an interesting countryside of the county of Highlands and to be able to find my inspiration in it. My inspiration also comes from places far away, from experiences, feelings and memories. They direct me to a constant effort to explore the space beyond the confines of materia. This effort is palpably present in some of my paintings. I am being driven by a desire to open the door and reveal the mystery of the unknown. I find a great joy in searching for the beauty, for the depth and purity of colours through which I can express myself. Peeping into the space beyond the border of consciousness and traces of its knowledge are my reward.
In my artwork, I alternately use drawing, graphics, dust pastels and also painting on natural silk. I do not take my scarves and kerchiefs as utility textiles but as silk paintings possibly to be worn on neck.
I teach Art at the Elementary Art School in Třebíč. Working with my students brings me joy and an inexhaustible source of surprises, which I find is mutually inspiring.
