Lena Zak (born in Slovakia) lives and works in Prague, Czech Republic. She incorporates Abstract Expressionist inspired strategies to create bold, gestural compositions that she refers to as “intense representations of emotion”. Spontaneity and raw feeling are key to her process, which is about navigating chaos and uncertainty in an effort to find balance. Zak predominantly works in acrylic, but often combines other mediums in a single piece. Moreover, her signature practice consists of the use of non-traditional items instead of typical art brushes. Within her new body of work, during 2021 Zak started to focus on the exploration of similarities between the process of destruction and creation, merging both of them into the final piece. Zak’s work has been exhibited in several galleries in Europe. She is currently exhibiting with the online platform IdeelArt.
