Lenka Falušiová was born in Vrbno pod Pradědem in the landscape of the mountains Jeseníky. She graduated at the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague in the studio of graphics art led by professor Jiří Lindovský and docent Dalibor Smutný. Her works is found in public institutions in the Czech Republic and in private collections all around the world.

Lenka take us by her large-format drawings and graphics in to the world of mountains, deep forests and rocks. An environment of melancholic landscape, mysterious and wild, where a strong cold wind blows and rain falls so often. In these forests we can get lost or encounter inexplicable phenomena. The forest where only a few people enter, who are not afraid to see what is inside.  Dramatically tangling branches speaks in a deep sound.

Lenka walks for many days on indistinct forest paths and watches only the surrounding space. In her works the forest becomes a symbol of sacred places where people can contemplate. A tree with a complex ever-changing structure isn't only entity of the nature but its becomes a thinking being with a mysterious story. Silence is also an important symbol of her work. We need silence, just as much as we need air just as much as plants need light.

If the dark is quiet the brightness moves. Somewhere deep inside the heart of the forest beats calmly.

"The clearest way into the Universe is through a forest wilderness."

- John Muir
