It is impossible not to think about vintage and nostalgic photos once we are confronted by large-scale monochrome paintings of Jakub Hubalek. Huge areas of dark colors, shades of gray, along with figurative elements and a feeling of a photographic blur, all of this forms the visual language of the Czech painter. Ponyhof artclub in Munich is proud to showcase the new series of paintings, whose grotesquely exaggerated language is a vehicle put forward by the artist and put in the service of provocation, examination of art history and questioning of existential loneliness that sits at the core of today’s society.

The Adolescent Stories and The Nostalgic Photos

Jakub Hubalek is a nostalgic of our time. Not surprisingly then, he reaches back into the past attempting to better understand the present and to envision or to even stir the future into a place where the virtual world is not the dominating force. Hubalek attempts to do just this by focusing much of his work on the analyses of the state of adolescence, bringing forward the empty feeling inside of today’s society. The pressure of the capitalist society is slowly pushing the humanity to its bowling point, and the loss of a true identity along with the feeling of not being grounded in the shape-shifting world around us makes us all feel lost. The need to always be present and relentlessly active brought us all to a state of constant anxiety. This contemporary discourse vibrates from the surfaces of Hubalek’s paintings, which stand as examples of New Objectivity existing at a crossroad between figurative paintingand abstract art....
