Autumn News Letter

We send the news letter 4 times a year as you know.

The Autumn News Letter pleasantly surprised us: all three artwork we promoted there were acquired by our dearest customers after this letter. This means for us that even in such strange times as now, people need art and even decide to support artists.

We wish all of us to find in ourselves the ability to stay in harmony with ourselves and with the world. And do the best that is possible here and now.

Thank you for reading.

The story of the LIME GIRL WITH PARROT

✒️With some paintings, it happens: they wait a long time in the wings. From this, a good painting only acquires strength and energy, and the weaker one, as it were, closes. And its energy seems to go where it came from.

This wonderful, light, joyful Girl has been waiting for almost ten years for its personal human been to come. That is, while we had a gallery, a lot of people, seeing it, wanted to buy it, but for some reason did not dare.

📖Perhaps this is because it had a twin painting. In a mirror image, in pink tones. They were conceived as a couple. But the Pink Sister was bought to Australia almost immediately, and this Lime one was delayed. For a long time.
It was bought yesterday.
We are very happy for both: for the painting and for the happy new owner of the painting.
Friends, courage!
We have many beautiful things for you on here.

P.S. 📍

This story about the painting is amusing itself.
But!
The comment on the gallery page in Insta makes it even more interesting:
"As the owner of the Pink Sister (!!!) pleasing to learn her other half has found a home."

What is the best way to show the artwork online?

This is, of course, a question.

On the one hand, flickering and an abundance of additional photographs distract from the actual work.

On the other hand, a painting is, in a sense, an object, and here it is already important what surface, scale in the interior, there is a frame or not, and there are many other details. How to show all this in order to support the viewer in his intention to purchase a painting?

During the 15 years of our gallery's existence in an old, poorly adapted space in the center of Prague, it seems to me that we have learned to "show" paintings. But online?

So,you have to think.

Here are some of the presentation photos to share with you:

1. Painting in the interior, next to a chair, wardrobe or table.

2. Framed painting, if any.

3. Painting on a working easel.

4. Painting at an angle to show the side and surface.

5. A fragment of the work

6. Painting on the wall

MAGNOLIA GRANDIFLORA TREE

This beautiful flower grows in the garden of our friends in France. I have seen this tree many times when flowering is just beginning or when it comes to an end. But this year I was lucky enough to observe this magnificent beauty in the midst of flowering - early July. These perfectly beautiful flowers appeared, lit up like stars in the dark foliage of the tree, and disappeared almost every new day. Elusive, changeable beauty. I enjoyed what I was watching and could not stop.

Of course, I had to paint this flower, this tree, this serene world, where you can hear the busy buzzing of bumblebees and bees.
Back in Prague, I decided to start with my first impression of simplicity and perfection of this creation. Therefore, I focused on the flawless shape of the flower and the contrast of the leaves to its whiteness. The glare of bright light in the gaps between branches and on the grass under the tree creates the feeling of a summer day.

The painting was painted on a pre-prepared canvas with various spontaneous surfaces that were left so in addition to conveying the impression of fragile perfection.

How To Order A Print?

Dear friends ,

As you probably remember, we had a nice amount of lovely prints in our XPgallery on address Jilska 22, Prague. Many things were changed since that time, but! We always looked how to manage with our prints? Because many of our customers asked us about...

After much research, we have found a way to print our prints in England in a quality and reasonable price. The option "prints of limited edition" has returned to the site.

If you don't find the artwork you would like to have as a print, please, contact us and we'll find the best way how to manage it.

Always

Thank you for collecting our art.

Thank you for support.

With best wishes from Prague

Svetlana Kurmaz and Alexander Sokht
