LIVES AND WORKS
DATE OF BIRTH
Jakub Tajovský explores the painting media as a tools of "the creative technology". Thanks to its historical tradition Painting includes many proven methods for construction and composition of an image. Jakub is looking for contrasting connections such as hi-tech vision and DIY expression or digital visualization and signs of physical materiality. In the experimental figures, he combines the historical receptures and methods of painting with the contemporary approach to material design or visual technologies.
Simultaneously with his painting practice Tajovský is developing The design of painting technology. In his painterly technology "material inteligence"- the inherent responsibility of matter works as crucial entity contributing on the pictorial imagination provoked by the painted imgage. The main actor of the resulting painting becomes tools, materials and methods, which instead of the touch of brush and the human hand represent, for eg. physical processes or material manifestations considered a mistakein conservative practices.
The painting object itself then acts as a platform for synthesis of visions between human and the other creative entities.
