The Art of History
During my final two years in the International Baccalaureate program, I created a collection of artworks as an exploration of recent Czech history. This allowed me to not only learn about my own heritage, but also to gain confidence and grow as an artist. Here is my collection, with explanations to go along with each piece.
This was my first piece, created at a time when I had no solid idea of what theme my collection would ultimately take on. I mainly focused on trying to convey the woman’s emotions; I pictured her looking back at her life, reflecting on all the struggles as well as all the joys. Metaphorically, I wanted to look back at the history of the Czech Republic and show those memories through my art.
