František Kyncl

The artistic creation of František Kyncl reflects the conflict of rationalism and intuition, of order and chance, simply of modern rational thinking and postmodern uncertainty, characteristic of the second half of the 20th century. Influenced by constructivism and the German group Zero, in the 1970s, Kyncl starts making works from skewers, later from bamboo sticks, as well as three-dimensional objects following both geometric forms such as triangle, square, or circle, and organic growth into all directions. Like this, fragile objects in the form of grids, nets, and sometimes even cobwebby clusters emerge, both refracting and reflecting light which thus becomes part of those objects. Kyncl calls them the Spatial structures and he understands them as a picture of society. (…)
