(1)

Czech born artist Marketa Sivek has been living and working in Chicago for over 20 years. Established as one of the leading artists in the community, her work has been featured in Elle Decor, American Art Collector, Fine Art Connoisseur and other publications, as well as featured on the Rachael Ray Show and national television. Ms. Sivek has numerous private and corporate collectors in the U.S., England, Australia, the Nordic countries and elsewhere, and is part of the private collection of both Oprah Winfrey and Tom Hamilton of Aerosmith. The narrative of Ms. Sivek's multifaceted work is deeply rooted in her childhood. Growing up in the authoritarian regime of communist Czechoslovakia, the desire for color, and lots of it, tells a story. Amidst grey apartment buildings where the color was sparse and sense of safety absent, Marketa employs structures and houses as a recurring theme in her work - a metaphor for a shelter as well as circumstances that can change suddenly. Lost in the infinity of the vast sky as clear as sapphire, grounded by a moon or planet, the complexity meets simplicity when the heavy layers of paint are united in harmony with finely graded brushstrokes. In Ms. Sivek's abstract works, sensational pools of color, raw and thick - some mixed directly onto the canvas - command immediacy and often instigate the urge for a nearly edible experience. Enthralling and inspiring, Marketa Sivek's work can be as light and sweet as cotton candy and as deep and profound as a shadow of melancholy during the flight of time. Just as life itself.

Bye 2019. You were filled with laughter and tears, ups and downs but mostly ups, and especially with love and gratitude... and we embraced it all 🖤
Going down the memory lane with a few pics:
1. Projects
2. Us
3. Gallery
4. Friends, family, functions and donuts in bed
5. Sedona with Nick 💗
6. Linda’s farmhouse, Irreverents and paella on a grill that I still dream about
7. The 50th Birthday celebrated many times with many cakes — my wife had a cake made for me with an exact replica of my shoes and I almost fainted from joy 🎉

Happy 2020 everyone!

Happy holidays, Merry Christmas!
I cannot stop buying ornaments EVER so here are our new purchases ! As a newly commuting couple, our Christmas tree got smaller this year and all of our ornaments from previous years are stored away ( about 200 of them 😱) However, we have Anna Wintour presiding over our tree this year, as well as the royal corgi ... and the high tea ornaments ... all make my heart skip every time I look at them — where I grew up, this was the only happy and bright holiday of the year :))

Thanks to @libertylondon @theofficialselfridges @fortnums
And all other “edibles” from @surlatable

I walk around our place and take photos all the time — yes my favorite pastime is taking photos of things close to me that I see everyday, that are still, often only surrounded by the shadows

Just laid out my golden blobs on prepped canvas for Makibg of a shadow series or Wabi possibly :) ... This has been a work in progress for a long time. I have no idea where it’s going. Possibly it will never get finished. But .. I could look at these beauties for hours. My heart is pounding from happiness and excitement. So simple, so so beautiful. And that’s what matters my friends :) 🖤

Ha ... it all looks like fun and games on IG but any type of moving on any level is exhausting... so why not a little afternoon break with a glass or two of champagne? It’s a good bye to Boston for me, for now, but hello there Boston for my wife from now on ... now we just have to manage. Knowing ourselves well, and the fact we make everything fun and pleasurable, we won’t have a problem there. Still, I will miss breathing the same air as my love of my life 🖤🖤🖤

Our new favorite place, especially now when we are looking for getaways close to Boston. It’s absolutely worth a trip. Sitting by the fire with a nice manhattan, feeling the history of this place with its beautiful, all original details, the time stopped. It was a beautiful and quiet experience that made us slow down and just be. Not to mention an excellent dinning and a wine list! Can’t wait to come back. Thank you @redlioninn

This pic by @maura_koutoujian is definitely advertisement worthy, wouldn’t you say @subaru_usa ?!
Anyway ...
We made it to Fish Creek WI today just after dusk to drop off a piece at Edgewood Orchard Gallery after picking up Maura’s press (yes she will be ready to make more art soon ! )
The gallery is always a magical place but today with the snow on the ground and all the lights on, we entered a beautiful winter wonderland ! I love LOVE the owners, Nell and JR - lovely, dedicated and loving couple. The season is over now but please visit next year if you can ♥️
