• About Animation Although Pavel Klvana s portfolio for a while included paintings executed in the classical style,his interest in digital technology and in particular the three-dimensional graphic environment of games has brought him back to the new media.The present domain of the Pavel Klvana s works is the study of virtual reality.. The digital depiction interests him primarily in terms of the authorship of man, the human desire for materialization of a fantasy,ideas and remembrances. The technical possibilities that the media offer are not an issue.Pavel Klvana s approach is surrealistic; as for the digital pictures and animations,he is more concerned in the freedom of idea.The exhibited Legend of the Crater is a transcript of his personal mythology and cultural history of the Czech nation. This virtual world of apes imaginatively absorbs many insights from various branches of human knowledge, thereby creating a labyrinth of meanings, from which it is impossible to ďŹ nd the way back without the guide the artist. However gloomy Klvana s works may appear, they do not lack the ability to entertain. V.M.
