Monogramista JTS *1949


Reflection on the Shadow of the Brown Line by František Kupka, 1995

MGM execution, design by Monogramist JTS, woven tapestry, 182 x 300 cm
Jan T. Strýček in his monumental tapestry called Reflection on the shadow of a brown line from 2011 inspired by a painting by František Kupka Solo of the brown line from 1912–1913, created that is, almost a hundred years earlier. Ludmila Vachtová, the author of Kupka's fundamental monograph, she included image to the chapter Stories of shapes and colors into which includes other artist 's important oils (Indispensable white line, Blue,…) from the period when he became one one of the most important pioneers of abstract painting. The author of the tapestry naturally focused for a decisive period in Kupka's development, when his the work was the most discovering and when it became clear that it belongs to the most progressive European and therefore and world painters. At the same time other representatives abstract art surpassed by wealth and the diversity of sources of inspiration and complexity thinking in which he was based on the knowledge of nature sciences and occultism, from thinking about the relationships between cosmic bodies and their systems and energies controlling nature, about the composition composed of the simplest geometric or variable organic shapes. Unlike many he did not follow other abstractists in any fundamental way to Cubism, but his other starting point became Central European symbolism and a feeling for the refined ornament.
