Alfred A. Dolezal
For me, art is a blueprint of the human reality – an invitation to explore another realm of possibilities.
At an early age, I learned to appreciate the value of simple things in life and to trust that which was familiar. Through the years, however, I began to question the fundamental “truths” about life. I started searching for answers and discovered that there was so much more to our existence than what meets the eye. My curiosity was stimulated and I began researching mythology, history, psychology, physics and metaphysics and combined these elements in my work.
My paintings often display cubistic and surrealistic tendencies, vibrant colors in dynamic combinations and thought-provoking imagery. They illustrate the levels from which our thoughts draw their energy and create their consequences and help to explain why the world is our self-portrait.
I often employ the pigments of my imagination to reveal a mischievous, humorous side, a dry sarcasm and my love for the unexpected.
The evocative symbolism in my oil paintings help us to understand that which we inherently know but have forgotten. Every end is at the same time the beginning of something else. This cycle of all insures there are no insignificant moments- only limitless opportunities to change and to grow.
I hope my works inspire others to find clarity, conviction and courage to transcend to greater knowledge and peace. And most important, may the viewer be stimulated to ask questions and never stop.
