The oil painting is typical for painter Ivana Svobodová. Abstraction symbiosis with figural expression, which is the substance of her works. „Woman“is frequented and repeated inspiration in different forms. Sometimes almost tender women´s silhouettes, another time depleted while dancing, temper and passionate referring to Femme Fattale…but also landscape, enchantment by nature, especially symbolism of birds and snails is strengthening autor´s not interchangeable trace. Ivana Svobodová has exhibited her works since 1982. Her works are represented in local as well as foreign galleries and in many private collections.
