Pavla Gajdošíková ranks to the youngest generation of Czech female painters involved in non-abstract painting. She went through three art universities in the Czech Republic (Brno, Ostrava and Prague) where she was lucky enough to be trained by excellent painters-pedagogues. She also trained abroad and shuttled between the Czech Republic and Germany for many years. This experience made her explore the relation between the two nations that share common historical experience. Via various media, Gajdošíková arrived at a combined painting style employing various historical symbols and motifs. The form of the collage-like stories is also characteristic of her black-and-white drawings which mainly draw from the artist’s immediate surroundings. Gajdošíková’s most recent painting cycle testifies to the gradually maturing of the artist. The monochrome treatment of a night apartment, the artist exactly evokes the atmosphere of emptiness but is at the same able to shift the subject as if as into the medium of a shining TV screen, thus making the whole appear as if a transmission of a hidden camera.
