Jitka Anlaufova, Prague Member Since June 2007 Artist Statement The key source of inspiration for my work is the landscape, or rather nature as a kind of primeval act of creation. This natural action is primarily manifested through the landscape. It is not, however, a landscape as a pleasing model, but as a complex image of the world, the universe, an interplay of the constitutive elements of earth, water, and light which enables us to see. It is as if light opens up the possibility for restrained and immaterial colour to appear in the area of the picture, colour that represents a renewer of harmony and created rhythm, as a pointer to the order which sets the world apart from the threat of chaos.
