Artist & Painter
Bedriska Znojemska her real name is Bozena Krejcova, née Fritzova, born on 02.06.1928 in Znojmo -hence her pseudonym- Znojemska After finishing her studies at lycée, she went on studying medicine. At the same time she attended a school of painting at the studio of the artist Emanuel Frinta. During the political check ups in this country in 1949 she was excluded from all type of universities. However she carried on with her studies of painting at E. Frinta's studio, later at the studio of F. Ketzk /department of figure and composition. She worked as an art editor at a publisher, later as an advertising artist. She applied her drawings for newspaper. After getting married to Borivoj Krejci they started cooperating on bells decoration – Borivoj as carver, Bedriska as a painter. They worked on designs and realization of new altars, pulpits, seats, windowpanes, wall paintings, Station of the Cross and renewal of sacred places. Besides, Mrs. Znojemska set herself primarily to free work. Her paintings were traversing the whole country to people oppressed by the communist and so for atheistic regime. A moral and spiritual content of her work has been a prevailing topic until these days. Around 50 exhibitions at home, around 15 exhibitions abroad – Italy, Switzerland, Sweden, England, California USA. Presentation at team exhibitions of miniatures, drawings, post stamps the exhibition of Woman Painter and private collections.

In the painting of Bedriska Znojemska we find several aesthetic nuances which diverge from one source - the modern symbolism. The painter takes the road of lyrical reflection which is an essential feature of her paintings. Another nuance of expression is for Bedriska Znojemska the romantic symbolism. And finally it is Surrealist symbolism which provokes subconscious ideas, the fantasy of inner images. It is the question of the search for “super reality”. In order to understand the specificity of the style of Bedriska Znojemska we must also emphasize her masterly work with the paints for she has acquired an entirely original technique of work with the paint. Expert analysis shows that the modern symbolism of Bedriska Znojemska is beautiful and majestic in many respects. Represented by Art Addiction Internet Art Museum:
