In his unique visual expression based on personal memory, Jan Merta transforms realworld themes into a unique projection of his own experience. This extraordinarily honest approach is in its intensity and truthfulness remarkably portable and forthcoming to the viewer. In most cases, the author chooses as the subjects of his paintings, drawings, and objects such items and realities on the margins of ordinary attention, which are, however, very important to him personally. By taking them out of their original context and processing them freely, he assigns them new content.
