After a long pause, Jan Ambrůz, a prominent representative of contemporary non-figurative sculpture and a long-time head of the Sculpture 2 studio at the Faculty of Fine Arts, Brno University of Technology, is now presenting his latest works made for the House of Arts exhibition rooms. Sculptural objects and installations made of various materials (glass, iron and wood) and large-scale black drawings are united by a basic theme, expressed through an elementary shape – the oval that appears throughout the works in modifications and variations of different materials. Ambrůz thus continues his earlier sculptural work based on basic geometric shapes, objects and constructions, with an emphasis on the nature of the chosen material and a relationship to the surrounding space, which has been their basic premise. In his work, the artist often uses and recycles materials from his earlier works, emphasizing the temporality and impermanence of material artefacts. The reduced morphology of Ambrůz’s work carries far-reaching messages, addressing fundamental questions of space, order, the natural cycle and metaphysics.
