A Man’s Heart

The interests of Tomáš Němec are wide-ranging: He loves films by Pasolini, Hitchcock and Tarantino, is enthusiastic about music, about Chopin and Callas as much as Blondie and Édith Piaf. And still, all these interests converge on a common aim – painting. It presents us with Piaf, makes her sing, pose and enjoy the audience‘s applause. Other pictures show everyday objects and scenes that capture his world like a diary: a crow, for example, in the middle of a letter case, and lots more which, in contrast to the theatrically charged scenes with Piaf, seem unspectacular and anecdotal. These are scenes which normally would hardly have been considered as likely to survive as art. Although Tomáš Němec creates the paintings themselves “classically” in oil on canvas, he does it in a way that often gives them the spontaneity of water colors. Yet they are just right for such fleeting impressions: a rose, a little dog, a plate or a tree in full, splendid blossom. (Hangar-7)
