Palo Čejka — Beautiful Things

Come and take a look at the reverse side of beauty and realise it is even more beautiful!

(I think) the depicted image is not separated enough from the object and its story.
It is simply not abstract enough…

What do you find beautiful? Is beauty subjective or objective? Can it be abstract? Or can it only describe concrete things which are considered beautiful? Is something beautiful when we want to own it? And when we cannot, does it lose its attraction? Is it no longer good enough for us to even consider it?

Palo Čejka carved many things into linoleum – simply because he considers them beautiful. Even if he/we cannot see/recognise them. His first solo exhibition at the Nitra Gallery will present three series of his prints: in colour, shades of grey and black and white. And many other things, objects, items. All of them beautiful.

Come and take a look at the reverse side of beauty and realise it is even more beautiful!
