Paintings and mixed media works by Czech artist Viktorie Langer are now on view through January 19, 2019, in Rosenbaum Contemporary’s Boca Raton gallery, 150 Yamato Road, Boca Raton, Fla. It is the first U.S. exhibition of the artist’s work and can be viewed during regular gallery hours, Tuesday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Langer was a Jindřich Chalupecký Award finalist in 2017, and her work has been exhibited in galleries and museums throughout Europe, including the National Gallery in Prague and the Sør-Troms Museum in Trastad, Norway. Her work is inspired by “early 20th Century art, especially artificialism and poetism; however, it also speaks a very current language and has a mature, signature style,” according to a jury statement from the Jindřich Chalupecký competition.
According to Langer, her paintings are “quite figurative, but the figures are not clear. It’s more like a feeling, like if someone passes you and you just get a glimpse of the person.” She also noted that the size of the painting is important. “When you come close to the painting, you feel it might absorb you or wrap around you. Perhaps that’s why I do large formats,” she said.
