(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.

Anyway ... really thought I could make. Damn. And, yes, I thought the exclamation mark would help. Damn.

The only word that comes to mind is apocalypse. Now ... I usually don’t get too overwhelmed by clutter as it is part of the working process and I don’t spend my energy on being tidy... but this ... this makes me want to go back to bed, eat potato chips and watch Columbo.

I take pictures all day long .. of everything ... all the time. Check out these pics of our living room reflected in the glass-framed artwork. No filter. Just a snap. Vintage feel. So cool.

I brought my computer home the other day and after painting all day today at the gallery , I’ve worked on some writings at home for a few hours. One manhattan and a glass of red wine later I look up at the sky and ... it was still blue! Seriously I thought it was close to midnight... I guess that’s called focus my friends .. and it comes at the ripe age when only important things matter :)) 🖤 Love to all.

Focus. Ha. First I wrote it on a post-it. Then on a sheet of paper. Then on a canvas. Then I framed the canvas. Then I hung it up. And now .. I think it worked ! I am totally focused on my third glass of wine.

Cooper and I watching snow. Cooper is an albino raccoon named after Anderson Cooper. He is as cute as Anderson and if he could, I bet he’d giggle just like Anderson. We saved him from a taxidermy store where he was sitting in the window for months locked in a glass case. He can hold flowers in his paws, American flag on 4th of July and sometimes our phones when we are on FaceTime. Today I wish Cooper was alive.

04/12/2020

How to make social distancing social without Lori Lightfoot showing up at your doorstep lol ... The wild life wasn’t exactly happy about our little party. Got an evil eye from a squirrel comfortably sitting in the tree 2’ away who didn’t flinch at our presence ( in fact I think she was waiting for us to leave) and clearly this flustered pigeon pretty much owns our friends’ wall now. Noted. These guys were having none of it. I can say for sure they don’t expect us to be back ever. I get it... And then we took a walk and ran into a dinosaur whose outfit I highly recommend to ALL. Perhaps the numbers would start dropping if we all hopped around in a dinosaur costumes.? (Yes, it did have a plastic shield :)

The only thing I had strength to do after a run to Whole Foods on Halsted today — where surprisingly nobody took count of many people they let inside nor cared about the fact that people were herding by the registers not caring about the 6’ distance marks on the floor — was to make this manhattan. People please OBEY the rules. It’s not that hard. It’s not just about you.

Exhausted after 9 hours of driving we decided to find a shelter for tonight. Didn’t realize what we were getting into upon entering this absolutely gorgeous landmark The Arcade. What a beaty! Yes, it’s completely deserted today with exception of a security guy and one clerk behind the front desk. We are probably the only ones here. Super grateful we found something open. And yes I wiped the entire room with antibacterial wipes.

Came across this little nugget at the studio today ... Remember what makes us great. For any creative person, to tap that hammer in the right direction takes a lifetime. It may look easy but it takes years of thought process, experiences going back to our earliest formative years, a struggle with constant decision making and execution ... And along the way, we hope to enhance your life with something that’s hopefully beautiful and meaningful 🖤
Stay well, sending love to all.

Throwback to happier times... This photo from my dear collector and beautiful soul inside out, Kristin, arrived in my inbox yesterday. It brought back lovely memories of her beautiful home, us installing the piece, having fun dancing around silly, while getting ready for one of her generosity parties. Due to her canceled travel plans, Kristin decided to acquire another piece of art instead, and I cannot thank her enough... This means that I can keep on going for a bit longer after all my projects fell thought the cracks literally overnight. Please do support independent artists.
We all need to veer off our well worn paths right now... even though for most artists that happens on daily basis. Still, when our livelihood is threatened suddenly, it takes on a different meaning. Kristin and I talked about these “well worn paths” we follow. She told me a story about the day she had gone cross country skiing but all she really wanted was to leave the path and dive into the beautiful untouched sparkly-white snowy plain spreading all around her. Sometimes, making a difference is at your fingertips. Thank you Kristin for who you are and your generosity that expands through so many fields.
Love you all.
Stay well.

Taking it one day at a time during these terrible crisis... And that’s when “Today” pieces started coming together. There is hope. If you are able to buy art, now is your chance to support us, the independent artists so we can keep on creating beautiful work and still keep the roof above our heads. Please and Thank you. Much love to all. Stay healthy out there 🖤
