Miroslav Polách, a graduate from the Prague Academy of Fine Arts, is a member of a strong generation of artists who made their names known on the Czech art scene at the break of the millennium. Polách’s work has developed from a symbolic and often expressive style into a precise and chiselled form of realistic painting. His subjects are the result of carefully planned installations which serve as models for the final work. This stage is followed by post-production and finally by the painting itself, which is in its technique and technology extraordinarily demanding. Polach’s work is not a typical example of the ever more popular hyperrealism; it is an exquisitely constructed and conceptually sophisticated realistic expression with a precise amount of hyperbole and irony.
