How thrilling and amusing can be a pinch of magic, a sparkle of superstition and a portion of narrative freedom, in this often so serious, complex weave/mesh, as the works of Jarmila Mitríková and Dávid Demjanovič show us…
Slovak artist duo Jarmila Mitríková (1986) & Dávid Demjanovič (1985) works with traditional technique of pyrography, burning motives into plywood, colouring them with wood stains. They use a technique of pyrography as a reference to a folk amateur art. Technique of pyrography was popular among people during socialism in former Czechoslovakia. They also create glazed or polychromed figurative ceramic sculptures. In their hybrid style you can see Christian traditions, folklorism, pagan rituals, superstitions, myths, local legends with links to WWII and socialistic history. Their works are among private collections, also in collection of Slovak National Gallery and other public museums. They live and work in Prague and Košice.
