Through color, texture and movement, Petr Ldin renders human expression on canvas. The women he depicts, whether dancing, reclining or posing, all project the same passive expressions, with tight lips and smooth eyes. There is a sense that these women are acquainted with reality, both the good and bad. They move through the compositions with the same attitude they move through life, accepting certain harsh realities. However, there is a celebration in portraying the serious side of living. It is part of the beauty of being human and experiencing emotion. Petr captures this duality with his use of vibrant colors and varying brushwork, projecting a sense of passion within his figures.
