Ferryman / About people in non-art and figures in art
Year of publication: 2017
A ferryman is a name for a certain type of artist. It is a concept of creation based on specific transitions between art and non-art. In this book, Rastislav Podhorský deals with the relations and connections between art and the world that is happening; the relationship between artists and people outside the field of art; problems and possibilities of contemporary art with regard to drawing and painting. The book offers a rethinking of the relationship between visual creation and transformations of thinking along with perception; evaluates the relationship between artists and non-artists and its importance in the very process of creation; in the third, he presents a largely atypical explanation of the role of the human figure in visual arts.
