ZOYA Gallery and ZOYA Museum collaborate with various artists, with many of them repeatedly.
Marek Ormandik likes to paint with a wide brush stroke. It is obvious to everyone who knows his work and therefore it does not have to be examined in more detail. But, and that’s a good question, why is he always painting in a wide brush stroke? Is it just a pose to guarantee that his painting is sufficiently original or is there something else in the matter? It is certainly not a pose, so we definitely need a wider interpretation.
During his years of artistic production, he exhibited at separate and joint exhibitions in about twenty countries. Let’s not only mention Slovakia and the neighboring Czech Republic but also Austria, Hungary and Germany, Italy, France, the Netherlands, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Turkey, as well as Russia, Japan or the USA. In 1998, the film Sklenné obrazy (Glass Images) was shot about his work, and two poetry collections of Shooting Prayers (1995) and Moon on Red (2006) were published in Bratislava.
