Rough, pristine, and poetic: Jan Jedlička is a painter, draftsman, graphic artist, photographer and filmmaker, but also a wanderer and explorer. As an attentive observer, he engages with the subtle changes caused by light, the seasons, or human interventions in his environment. Precise, delicate, and quietly persistent, Jedlička’s works refer to the landscapes and places in which he moves and returns to again and again like the Italian Maremma. For his drawings, watercolors, and paintings, he extracts pigments from minerals found on site—and thus literally brings the landscape onto paper and canvas. This publication explores Jedlička’s oeuvre from the 1970s onwards—not chronologically, but as a map of the artist’s movements through the landscape, and along the paths of his various artistic strategies.

Jan Jedlička (b. 1944, Prague) studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague before migrating to Switzerland in 1969. He works in various media: painting, drawing, photography, printmaking, and film. His works have been exhibited in various galleries and museums in Europe.
