*1995, Prague, Czech Republic
Antonia Stanová’s paintings evoke a subconsciously friendly impression. Even if they are abstract lines, scribbles, fingerprints or fragments of things, the final interplay of seemingly chaotic elements has a balanced effect. Antonia Stanová’s artistic nature probably began to take shape even earlier than her early years. She then developed her own style of expression at the Academy of Arts and Crafts in Prague, where she was influenced by her studies in Jiří David’s studio. Already during her studies she established a successful cooperation with the Kvalitář gallery, where she prepared her first large solo exhibition Its Oh So Quiet. For her second comprehensive solo exhibition, Maculata, curated by Pavel Kubesa at the renowned NoD Gallery, Antonia prepared during the past half-quarantine in 2020-21. Antonie Stanová, in the company of Bohumila Grögerová, will exhibit brand new works under the title Tried to Tell Ya Something through the Phonena in an exhibition at the Kvalitář gallery from 17 September – 12 November 2021.
Antonie Stanová (*1995, Prague) is in her third year at Jiři David’s Intermedia Confrontation studio at Prague’s UMPRUM. During 2019, she completed residence at visiting lectors Nina Beier and Sláva Sobotovičová’s studio.
Stanová’s work has been presented at a variety of group exhibitions such as NEW SELECTION, group exhibition at Kvalitar Gallery (2020 – 2021), MACULATA at NoD Gallery (2020), IT’S OH SO QUIET, Kvalitar Gallery (2019), The Hills have Eyes (HotDock project space, Bratislava 2019), Extra Care ( DOX+, Praha 2018) and 8/8 (ARCHIP, Praha 2017).
