Trigger Warning: Exploring the Wasteland with Fine Artist V Holeček V Holeček’s pencil drawings and acrylic paintings evoke an other-worldly realm that is earthy and engrossing. His darkly surreal landscapes are deliciously organic but filled with post-apocalyptic-dystopian wrecks and outsized bones and skulls littering the environment…He creates these arresting bastardisations of classic images, with targets including a portraiture of a Renaissance style angelic woman who is afflicted with a pig’s snout, trotters, and the absence of eyes (in Das Tierdrama). There is also George Washington with black anime-proportioned eyes and tentacles (in In His House at V’rnon, Dead Washingthulu Waits […]

Currently he has three artists in his main space. First are the exquisite, one-of-a-kind prints by William Mortensen. His pieces are small in size and meticulously wrought with imagery that sweeps from the romantic to the ghastly.
