Helena Šišková and the pictures that speak by Nora Čechmánková

Helena Šišková: Winter, 2009Helena Šišková (1935, Vrbové) was educated in photography at the School of industrial art. She started to do glass painting in 1990. She gets inspiration from traditional folk glass painting, however, she also applies own creative approaches. The work of Helena Šišková refers to her memories to childhood and her love for nature. Again and again, she gets inspiration from seasons, rural live and activities or ceremonial events (Christmas markets, baking cakes, carollers). She uses models of folk costumes and buildings from books. She invents the rest of her pictures by herself. Šišková rarely makes religious pictures as she believes it is a private theme for her.
She started to cooperate with the ÚĽUV in the early 1990s. She was awarded the title Master of folk art production in 2009.
