Daribor SMUTNY Czech republic

" Evening "

小幡悦子 / Etsuko OBATA


Daribor Smutny is known for the mezzotint series called “Flower” that shows his interest in the composition and structure of flowers. The flower, burnished from the velvety black mezzotint background, shines softly. Where does the light come from? Is the flower itself shining? Thus his works explore different aspects of reality.
