Barbora Lepší is interested in the details of hair, folds or skin texture. Not in the sense of anatomy, but the body as a form and an “enigma” at the same time. Her work shows the influence of graphic programs, their visuality, effects, layering, framing. But the result is material, it has its own structure, composition of materials, “corporeality”.
The individual works, although created intuitively, are nevertheless set in possibly chosen fields of reference (surrealism, Kris Lemsalu, Aaron Curry, magic realism, Ester Krumbach, new wave, Eva Hesse).
Beyond these references, I would also mention a certain formal and perhaps even substantive closeness to the work of Jitka and Květa Válová. Their existentialism in Barbara’s performance mixes with the “pop” colours of the backgrounds and the flatness of the markers.
