New Work - Painting

Hynek Martinec - Will and Representation

Parafin presents new works by Hynek Martinec. It will be the artist’s third exhibition with the gallery and his first since his landmark solo show at the National Gallery in Prague in 2018.

Martinec’s new works continue his fascination with his use of mythic stories and images from the past as tools with which to speak about the present moment.

In addition to the new paintings, in Parafin’s lower gallery Martinec will for the first time create an installation titled ‘The Dance of Dreams’, in reference to Holbein’s satirical series ‘The Dance of Death’ (1523-26) after the late-medieval allegory danse macabre.
