Exhibition: František Vízner - Ateliér 
March 11, 2011
Ida Viznerova

The latest exhibition of František Vízner opened this week at the Nová síň gallery in Prague. The exhibition presents the remarkable art of the world famous glass artist, who celebrated his 75th birthday this month. It is a rare opportunity to see for the first time in his country the complete collection of his studio glass production, i.e. unique hand cut sculptural objects created between 1960's and today, including his latest collection from black glass. 

The functionalist interior of Prague’s Nová síň gallery is in perfect harmony with the artist’s work and philosophy. Thanks to diffused daylight it allows an impressive presentation of the glass sculptures. Within its space, the artist will orchestrate variations on his basic geometric sculptural forms of universal shapes (bowl, vase or plate) into a composition with the magical light of coloured glass. The installation is visually complemented by the enlarged photographic prints, depicting the artist’s solitary work in the studio.
