Lucie Kazda was born in 1974 in the Czech Republic and studied at the Kunsthochschule Weissensee, Berlin from 1999 to 2005 where she graduated with the diploma. Since 2010 she is working as freelance designer and artist, she is member of the BBK Oberfranken, Focus Europe and the Kunstverein Bayreuth. Since 2017 Lucie Kazda is gaining further qualifications as curator at the Universitaet der Kuenste, Berlin. She had numerous solo exhibitions since 2007 and regularly takes part in group exhibitions and art fairs at home and abroad. Lucie Kazda lives and works in Bayreuth.
Lucie Kazda has developed an artistic approach that combines conceptual works with adventurous design. Kazda sprinkles parchment paper with oil paint allowing a coincidentally generated play of colours which she will disallow in the very next moment to avoid garishness and complaisance. (…) In addition the suggestive mood evoking sensations are visualized by light-flooded picture elements such as cloud formations, suggested formations of landscapes or abstract craquelure traces of earth and sand which are enclosed by a deep spatial landscape scenery that is pushing to the centre on completion of each work – to the light – to the inner eye.

The focus of my works is the interaction of different artistic techniques. The paint – at times applied vigorously with pigments – other times transparently like behind a glass pane – down to the reduction to black and white – is the exciting subject of my work. The playful aspect of materiality I create my abstract light-flooded spaces from is of central importance for my works.
