(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.

A few vignettes from today’s private showing at our clients’ ever so gorgeously beautiful home. Yes we tried to barter and trade a painting for their puppy, unsuccessfully — Duncan wouldn’t have it. What he did have was a lot of attention and love... and he knew it! This cutie pie was a star!
This was so much fun! We’ve had our dog fix and met wonderful new clients today. What else is there to wish for ?

My last project of 2020 in this beautiful vintage building overlooking Lincoln park and Lake Michigan took good six months to finish. Long but lovely task and ... Voila! We brought an extra Piece of Blue Sky into this stunning Lincoln Park living room and added another dimension to the library by making a “window” with an Untitled Landscape.
Thank you for trusting me with this project! I adore you ... all my clients and I am eternally grateful to you for appreciating my work. Love to all ! 💙

Europe, Chicago, Miami
(Triptych)
A commission I have finished just in time for Christmas for clients now living in Miami. Both originally from different parts of Europe, moved to Chicago, and from there just recently to Miami. Being so fond of all three places, this very personal and intimate commission was to be reminiscent of times past and present and capture memories of all places they loved and called home. Due to the pandemic and the world being in chaos, we had very little conversation among ourselves about the process and visuals, nor I had many details to work with. Mostly, I relied on my instinct and personal experience.
The pieces had arrived at the new home just before Christmas and to my great happiness were embraced with love and joy by all three members of the family. They became a “conversation pieces” at a dinner table. He loves “Europe” as it reminds him of summers spent with his grandparents in the hills of Romania. She loves “Miami” that reflects her love for snorkeling and the 7 year old is most fond of “Chicago” (maybe it’s a duck floating on the North Pond?)
All in all, there is nothing more satisfying than creating a piece of art that can enrich and bring so much joy into people’s lives.... Thank you.
I am so grateful for all my clients. Love you all !

Happy anniversary to us and happy new year to you! 4 year ago (also 30 ponds ago) I married the love of my life. Somebody so thoroughly good and beautiful inside and out that it still makes my head spin. This year ... with gratitude, sadness and hope we are ready to open the door at midnight to let 2020 out. Here is to new beginnings! Cheers! (Yes I am wearing the same clothes I wore yesterday, and the day before .. and two weeks ago ... and ...I don’t care! Love to all ! ♥️

I love the first snow. So transformative, beautiful and pure. And it finally came last night! I could literally sit by the window for hours and watch ( preferably with a cocktail in hand :) Here is a little homage to Chicago, our beautiful city.

A walk, finally. It’s been a while since I posted anything personal. But on Sunday we took a walk by the lake and all of a sudden I was able to let go of all things work and pandemic. It was a heavenly hour. Full disclosure: I also realized that my coat looked even more fantastic on this greenish wet foggy day, with the waves moving slowly and ominously in the background, lol. Soo ... we took a few pics and I saluted to the beloved Lake Michigan with one of my “I know I have no rhythm” dances (don’t try that at home, kids, or anywhere else, I usually end up on a floor) 😬

Tiny but mighty. Another collection of small Butterfly Vignettes, this time more abstract and so beautifully colorful.
If you prefer to keep things minimal, perhaps you don’t need that big piece of art after all. And if you are tired of walking by small and odd wall spaces that lurk in your home and don’t know what to do about it, check out some of my artwork and ideas. Scroll to see what a tiny piece of art can do to a room.
