About the Artist:
Petra is a traditional printmaker and illustrator from Czech Republic.
Her universe is one of almost tyrannical, symbolist harmony. The meticulous attention to detail combined with the unnamed feeling behind words, senses and meaning. Quiet, unmoving, perpetual gazing upon something charmingly familiar, yet strangely and deeply foreign. Alien, ambiguous, disconnected from our expectations and challenging ordinary perception – creatures humming silently, in their shattered words of dread and eeriness.
