Ivana Suchacova is an abstract expressionist painter and philosopher who experiments
in her paintings with a theme of freedom which she considers to be the essence of her inquiries.
Whether we create with a conscious concept, or give in to instinct, there still seems to be a concept in
the lack of it. The question Amoris asks is: what is the freedom, then?
She received a Master of Philosophy of Art degree at Charles University in Prague, Czech Republic.
Amoris’ works are influenced by not just the known and seen, but also the metaphysical. She creates
works that stem from a reality that the Self aligns itself with, despite the habitual responses and
unconscious thoughts. Amoris inquiries into the dichotomies of doing and not doing, studying the Self as
a being beyond one that is defined by choices that it is familiar with. It is more about the studying of
Self, tasting the real essence of being, when the mind is in conscious, wide-awake present stillness in
which it starts to create. That is for her pure energy of being and creating in freedom.
Amoris’ current work concerns to questions and subsequent conversation that arises between the
universal energies of something that comes from a priori freedom. The crucial seems to be the space
that occurs in form, somewhere between movements, manifested in her visual expression. Her
tendencies in her work are inspired by American abstract expressionism such as gestural abstraction or
action painting where the canvas happens to be a vast space in which to act, rather than as a space in
which to reproduce, redesign, analyze or express an object. She goes even beyond in her visual studies
and transcends that what the mind thinks about it, to the essential core of creating itself. What goes on
the canvas is not a picture, or an idea, but actually is an event.
Some of her works created while traveling in Asia are exhibited in museum of contemporary art MAIIAM
in Chiang Mai, Thailand, and TITA GALLERY in Mae Rim, Thailand. She lately exhibited her latest works
created back in Europe on solo show in Muj salek kavy in Karlin, Prague that was on view until July 21,
2019 and on group show in Gallery Kotelna, Ricany, Prague until June 1, 2019. She is now exhibiting her
large scale works in a solo exhibition called Living the Truth in Artiseme, Prague. Her work is part of
private collections in Prague, London, Munich, Slovakia, USA, Thailand and Bali.
Ordo Amoris lives and works between Prague and Thailand. Alongside painting, she also pursues film by
capturing the world around her with a Flexaret two lens film camera.
