Ildikó Pálová (1982) graduated from the Faculty of Arts at the Technical University in Košice (Department of visual arts and intermedia, Atelier of contemporary painting).
The series of paintings entitled Nemecké príbehy / German stories consists of solitary figural paintings that are expressive in terms of both colour and meaning. Her paintings are significantly influenced by her personal experience of violence against women during her stay in Germany. Author’s stories, intimate art-therapeutic statement, child sincerity as well as artistic spontaneity impart an authentic expression to her works. The author expresses own personal experience from travels confronted with life in Slovakia – the series England / Slovakia / Germany – through compositional solutions and genres, such as portrait, self-portrait, landscape and author’s text.
