Jan Pecarka

Jan is a Slovakian artist whose work examines a scalar confusion of figure and landscape. At first they appeared separately, vast, smooth-seeming pieces of bodies and surfacey land. His best work places bodies on vast geographical scale: a woman waist deep in a planet her own size, a man hovering above a city, a figure either blue or in atmospheric perspective, toes on islands.

about 5'x7', 2008, I think. I just went to his studio and took these pictures because it's not up on his site yet.

He's having a solo show January 29th through February 11th at the Bohemian Benevolent & Literary Association at 321 E. 73rd St (between 1st and 2nd), 3rd Floor, NYC. (212) 988 1733
Reception 6:30 on the 29th. WON'T YOU
