Petra McGrath

Petra McGrath (1972) is a painter and designer who lives alternately in Prague and Sydney. In her mature work and her interpretations there is an extraordinary but distinct harmonious balance of will to purposeful intent, along with sovereign spontaneity and improvisation. This symbiosis is a key character in the individuality and energy of her paintings.

Petra's sources of personal inspiration are mainly her attention and visual sensitivity to the environment, light, colors, distinctions and common denominators of both cultures of Europe and Australia. They are also a testament to the artist's extraordinary receptiveness, which amplifies her healthy sovereignty of her work in the context of distinguishing between the two cultures, nature and their color range. The vibrating color scheme is, above all, a source of timeless joy, energy and free personal interpretations in the abstract part of her work.

Petra's paintings are a unique example of sovereign harmonic combinations of figurative elements within color abstractions with hints of spatial perception and original compositions. These figurative images are an example of the healthy symbolism of human existence, again colorfully and compositionally confidently and purposefully mastered in understanding and joy, often playful to humorous personal interaction. Even the names of the paintings – Synchronicity, Chance, I am, Fusion, Good Year, Reborn testify to the distinctive and perfectly communicated imagination of the author.
