Anna Boček Ronovská (*1975) is a teacher at the Department of Art Education of the Faculty of Education of the Palacky University in Olomouc and at the Studio of Graphic Design and Multimedia of the Faculty of Informatics of the Masaryk University in Brno. The author's main language of expression is drawing, but she also interprets the results of her creative process through graphics or performances. In the exhibited works from recent years, she explores the possibilities of integrating the body, voice and visual expression, as well as drawing on the aesthetics of comics and Japanese woodcuts. In the process of creation, among other things, she uses artificial intelligence as an expression of the collaboration between the artist's ego and the machine. She does not avoid the question of motherhood or the situation of women in different roles and periods of life.
The artist will present her latest project "Neverending story". In it, the format expresses the neverending canvas of a mobile phone screen, allowing to "scroll" print screens infinitely up and down. The artist thus creates a diary record that can continue indefinitely as a line of ordinary events and things.
"Drawing is an activity that is a necessity of life for me (like eating and sleeping) and has nourishing and meditative effects. Observation of the world is thereby refined and sensitivity of perception is increased. The ability to openly perceive reality is probably one of the few things that can enrich us in the long term and is meaningful. But how do we share these experiences? This is probably one of the key factors in the creative process. Not only the knowability of the world in its epistemological sense, but also the problem of transmitting it to others and transforming it into whatever form it takes, of course, distorts the process, but at the same time enriches it. The chosen medium is then decisive for the final form of the work. The long standing proven brain-hand model as the shortest and fastest way can, of course, be enriched by the involvement of the machine (camera, computer and other media)."
