CREATION 

Sometimes I feel like I have to create to survive. Accumulated inspiration is very burdensome, so I learned to create space in my life for creation and SELF-EXPRESSION. 

 Over the years, in creativity and self-expression, I began to find therapeutic overlap and healing effects not only on our nervous system, but also connections to traumas and blocks. Creation is a caress, a kind touch, a meditation, an indicator of deeper conscious and unconscious emotions and blocks. It doesn’t matter what I create, but my hands feel something. Weight goes away with every stroke, time fades away. 

 After years of own creation, the Arthepy.com project began to emerge

Multipotencionality - SOLD

“Now I’m riding a wave of peace, a wave of connection and self-acceptance. I’m not a role anymore. I am not the definition of a daughter, partner, child, friend or student. I am not defined. I just am. I am who I want to be right now. I am a free spirit. I am a creative soul. I’m a Longbeard. I’m a surfer. I’m a tomboy. I’m a woman. I am a fairy and I am harmony. I am conscious and unconscious energy. I am i am love I am forgiven. I am understanding. I am loved. I am loving. I am A fickle port. I am home. I am a temple. I am a sanctuary. I am the melody. I am the universe. I am light and dark. I am balance. I love, forgive and accept.” This image came with the awareness of the word “Multipotentiality” The definition according to which people are divided into professionals and multipotentialites. Almost at the same time, I discovered the concept of “High sensitivity” — Feelings of greater self-acceptance came, but also concerns, regrets about being hard on myself, fears about how I would deal with this new awareness. The multipotentialite stands majestically even though she is afraid. She has her head held high and is determined to meet her authenticity.

Always a little bit weird

The painting captures my inner feelings of insecurity. It’s the little girl inside me who needed reassurance and support. I most associate this period with elementary school and adolescence. On the outside I was wearing a mask, on the inside I was writhing. Always a little weird. That describes the feeling exactly.

Materials: Oil on canvas

Mermaid

An expression of my fear of water, which I was overcoming in myself. Inside I was always drawn to the ocean, but I couldn’t leave the bottom with my feet. A surfer who is afraid of water? It doesn’t go well together. Again, it was the little girl inside of me who needed reassurance that everything was okay. 

 Material: Acrylic on canvas

The flapping of butterfly wings

This painting was created from three souls with a strong story. It was created on a sunny day in the garden, in collaboration with the artist Ivana Dostálova and Anička, a teenage girl who underwent psychiatric treatment and is now regaining her strength. A seemingly chaotic image, with a precisely elaborated composition. From the first sight, it draws you into the center where you find an angel sitting on a rock ready to take off. When it flaps its wings, things around it move, flow and happen. Just take off. 

Material: Acrylic on canvas 

Size: 100×120 cm

Imag(in)e

An image in which you can find more of yourself than my subject. A piece of Earth. Meeting of colorful days with darkness, ACCEPTANCE. The painting also reflects rebirth and a new beginning that comes after challenging moments in life. 

Material: Acrylic on canvas 

Size: 80×80 cm

Fighting Angeles

Crimson red combined with blue, free brushstrokes, freedom and at first glance chaos. In fact, these moves express both the conflict and the consensus between good and evil. Also the scars that disputes can cause us and the insecurity we find ourselves in. Pink softens the situation a bit and captures the idea of finding solutions, resolution and reconciliation. Disputes are a part of our lives and sometimes we struggle. We find our way through dark thoughts, we expose ourselves to our inner judge and find the strength to stand up to him.

Deep Inside - SOLD

We all have a certain depth. From this depth the best of us, the purest, comes to the surface. It is a treasure that we all carry within ourselves and it only depends on us if we embark on a difficult journey within ourselves to discover it.

Mr. Avoccado

This image is my personal representation of the partnership. Avocado is associated with the memory of my first great love and an important person on my life’s journey. But I’ll keep this story to myself. However, I love avocado, it is the perfect fruit for me, not only aesthetically, but also in taste. It is healthy and green is calming, so it is also safe. The composition of the image is quite haphazard and there was an error in the use of material, but it strengthened my definition of partnership all the more. When the relationship is mature, healthy and safe, it doesn’t matter what happens around and what circumstances and obstacles come our way, together we can handle it all.

A Dying Ocean

A Dying Ocean. An image that was created completely spontaneously after watching a documentary film about the ocean. The ocean is nature’s home. We are terrestrials and what is under water belongs to us even less than what we take on land. The ocean is a completely different universe on this blue planet.

Lost & Found

HOME 

Harbor on the way. A lighthouse in a storm. Home is where love is. Having a loving home is a rarity. We have to create it every day, work on ourselves to create an energetically clean home. Home is a place where we can be ourselves. A place that doesn’t judge us, but supports us. 

At first glance, the image may seem gloomy, but thanks to the colors and stylization, it combines the idea of loss with a new beginning and hope. Sometimes a massive wave comes over us that can knock us to our knees, but that doesn’t stop us if we keep the flame burning inside us and give. We can follow this inner flame and create from it a safe space, a home, a harbor that will light our way even in a challenging storm of emotions or life circumstances.
