The work of this prematurely deceased artist will be presented an exhibition prepared by the team of her colleagues from Prague City Gallery and the curator Petr Vaňous. This “artist and painter, sometimes reaching out to the object, installation and new media, has developed her own distinctive artistic expression consisting of ‘abstracted storytelling’, which can be described as existential. Michaela Maupicová’s drawings represent a spontaneously multiplying, restless, all-absorbing ornament, sometimes disciplined into symmetrical systems, sometimes running and spilling randomly over and outside the format, or expanding directly into space. Here there is an order in randomness, an enlargement that in a model situation of the given unifying element and its multiplication allows us to see our analogous idea of what is happening outside and inside of us.“
