BACK TO FRONT Series is a collection of works through which I question our accepted way of viewing traditional canvas. When we go to galleries to look at paintings or other wall-based objects, our eyes are most of the times met by only the 'front' of the paintings. I have always been wondering about the hidden side, the 'back' of it. This is why I dress the canvas stretcher the wrong way round - back to front and expose what is normally hidden. I like exploring what is not visible at the first sight.
Josef Albers's colour studies have been a great influence on this collection. I find the language of colour very intriguing because it can express so many different ideas or emotions. I will never know if you see the same red as me and how it feels. I love the thought of having this endless conversation through colour combinations.
BACK TO FRONT Series is an ongoing project, new additions will be regularly uploaded here and on my social media channels IG: stepf2018 FB: Stepanka Art
