Anastázia Huštáková pursues one of the most ancient painting techniques. Silk painting originated in ancient China but eventually spread all over the world. Anastázia initially used the expressive potential of this fascinating medium to conjure up attractive fashion accessories. She designs and produces hand-painted scarves, skirts and dresses conceived as works of art in their own right. Since 2014 she has been applying her skills to wall-mounted paintings as well.
Her Œuvre showcases typically Slovak archetypes. First of all flora (trees, flowers, landscapes, the cycle of seasons) and fauna (mostly birds), occasionally espousing a naïve sensibility. Shapes are mostly delimited by contour lines, although she sometimes lets colours bleed into each other, introducing a touch of serendipity. The chromatic orchestra is conducted alla prima which calls for a steady hand.
The artist has held several successful solo exhibitions in Slovakia and in Austria. The works on display received favourable reactions.
A selection of scarves and shawls by Anastázia Huštáková, as well as the Roses in Snow skirt, can be seen, tried on and purchased at the Staré časy store at the corner of Klariská and Baštová in old-town Bratislava (opposite Twigi).
