THE CAR­A­VANS OF MON­STERS MARCH THROUGH THE SILENT MARSH

Hong Kong Tatler Homes - - EUROCUCINA 2018 - BY VLADIMÍR KOPECKÝ

Czech artist Vladimír Kopecký, long renowned as a painter and glass sculp­tor, cre­ated just four works for the Mon­ster Col­lec­tion, all fea­tur­ing a paint­ing en­closed within glass slabs.

The 86-year-old says he was ap­pre­hen­sive at first about be­ing able to por­tray the theme in his style but warmed up to the idea once he started work­ing on it. The four pieces—Self­Por­trait, Yel­low Eyes, Black Cry, and Fury—are based on a Czech fairy tale about guardian dogs, a child­hood favourite that Kopecký’s grand­fa­ther used to read to him.
