(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.

When you sell an oversize piece on Monday evening and deliver it on Tuesday morning ... by yourself because delivery guys are booked! I have a soft spot for all Chicago highrise loading docks. You know that’s where it all happens and I love chatting with the staff and security guys and gals while waiting for that freight elevator ... I can’t thank them enough for being nice and super helpful every single time 🖤

Simplicity. Magical interaction of colors. Why is it that we are so attracted to a circle and circular objects? Sun, moon, planets.. circle is everywhere in the natural world and in every area of human knowledge. We view round objects as safe, comforting, calm, relaxing and beautiful.
DM to inquire about new pieces of the Dot collection that look gorgeous in any size on any wall, as a center piece, complementary piece or a little vignette paired up with 3D objects. So many possibilities!

New Orb collection pieces available now!
Sun, moon, planets, circle is everywhere in the natural form and in every area of human knowledge. Human eye views round objects as safe, gentle, dreamy, beautiful. They evoke calmness, peacefulness and relaxation.
Set in vast uninterrupted space, this series is about stillness and movement. Stillness on a verge of movement, perhaps ... if you keep looking long enough you’ll feel these balls are about
to change positions.
Circle is never complete.

Little pink house on the shore. Almost completed.
What is it with my obsession with lonely houses nestled by themselves in all that vast, never ending space ? .... Shelter, hope, desire, mystery, simplicity, serenity, warmth, closeness, change, quiet ... and perhaps just a little bit of underlined danger? I love working on these babies. Every one of them triggers different feelings and transports you into a different imaginary place.
Stay tuned for better pics when finished. 46x64 oil on canvas, House collection.

I love my clients — you enable me to do what I do best and I cherish your support deeply in my heart. Here are a few pics from our wonderful private showing at this absolutely gorgeous brand new home with fantastic lake and city views. These pieces were a perfect fit! We’ve had so much fun AND got to play with a couple of fury friends (who thankfully approved of the paintings :) Thank you, you know who you are 🖤

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 !
