For several years the author addicts herself to painting the details of nature, organisms and changes in the natural environment. Her diploma thesis entitled „The Jellyfish in the Forrest“ launched her other projects focused on the world of flora.

The exhibition in the Jan Koniarek Gallery intends to present her painting for the last fifteen years and refer to the transformation in the thematic areas: from sensory experience of touching a jellyfish to fine-drawn color combination of forest coves, configuration of moss and bizarre tangle of tree roots. Since graduation, Ovšáková was fascinated by the natural details, microorganisms and the "substance of flora". So in her work she moved to the substance of grass where she emphasizes the colors and shapes of blades, already associated with figural motifs. Special chapter of her work consists in her passion for the Japanese tree Cryptomeria whose forms and variations dominate her latest paintings. At times, the surface of the picture is decomposed, at other times it composes of concentrated colored spots applied with expressive brush strokes. Artistic sensibility of Jana Hýbalová Ovšáková is emphasized by these rhythm-making color structures in which, here and there, windows into miraculous countries open. Live lines of shapes consist of multiple touches of brush that, from a distance, create the illusion of wildlife. Transformations of shapes, especially those of Cryptomeria motive, often disappear in the symbolic color areas to create a perfect imitation of unique components of nature which the painter chooses from mysterious reality. She perceives the individual objects mainly by sight and later also simultaneously by other senses. Haptic moment is not enough for her anymore – she needs a personal experience for herself. One gets goose bumps... That is why the exhibition was given this name.
