Jilemnická Elen

She studied from 1960 to 1964 at the Secondary School of Sculpture and Stonemasonry in Hořice v Podkrkonoší, then for one year at the Academy of Fine Arts in Wroclaw, Poland. From 1965 to 1970 she studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague in the studio of professors Karel Hladík and Jiří Bradáček. Her artistic direction was shaped by pop art and new figuration. After the first works with theater and circus themes, situations of everyday life began to appeal to her. During the seventies, fragment, detail, torso became more and more popular. By enlarging it turns shoes, dresses, ties, toothbrushes into monuments. In cycles, the human hand appears most often, the material is polychrome plaster and ceramics. The turn of the seventies and eighties brought interest in stone, especially sandstone. The grotesqueness of the heads does not lie in the irony, but in the absence of a face, the portrait turns into a shell. Since the mid-1980s, he has been dealing with ceramic reliefs, which are almost diary entries of common situations - button fastening, looking in a mirror, threading a string, grating carrots, cutting nails, elevating banal activities to a ceremony. He returns to some topics, processes them in various variants. He also deals with utility ceramics, produces jars, sugar bowls, bowls, mirror frames.
