"It is your perception
that completes the picture"
Jan Řeřicha - Cardamine
Each painting has its unique energy. It springs from its origin, reflects its intent, and changes together with your viewpoint. As to its origin - just imagine the energy of a painting that has survived the wind, the rain, the snow, being placed for months in the garden nearby to the tree it represents ...
The frame itself has the ability to extend the painting beyond its here and now to a different time and space. It highlights the theme and frames the perceived story. The painting becomes alive through the frame.
The academic painter Jan Rericha had been using the signature Cardamine in the period of 1998 - 2018. This webpage represents this period. Some paintings are no more available, yet you can still order some original paintings or the authorized reprints. You are welcome to contact Mr. Rericha with your wish.
