Kateřina Frgalová, currently studying in the Painting studio (led by Vladimír Véla) at the FDU ZČU in Pilsen, separates objects of everyday use, which she installs in inert spaces. It thus accentuates the essence of the image and elevates a seemingly banal object from the category of simple function to the category of transcendence. It presents the default reality with a specific fragmentation that is focused on a specific segment of the subject spectrum. An environment without people is characteristic of her paintings. With objects conceived as players on the stage of the world, Frgalová treats them as objects in which she can hide, which are personally close to her. They maintain a relationship with their user, although the user remains unseen, being the one who lives with them and observes them. Sometimes they seem to want to leave the picture, the space expanding around them pushes them to the edge of the frame.
