Vojtech Matousek – Virtual Exhibit
Please enjoy this virtual exhibit of selected works by Vjotech Matousek, composed of delicate watercolours and descriptive oil paintings depicting spring and summer in Manitoba. Pieces available for viewing at our Winnipeg Gallery.
Vojtech (Voita) Matousek was born in Czechoslovakia in 1936. He immigrated to Canada in 1969 eventually settling in Winnipeg. His mother was an artist, and taught him a love of art and painting at a young age. As a young man his professional Design Engineering training incorporated art components. After 16 years in Design Engineering, he made the switch to a full-time art career.
Matousek loved the vast landscape of his adopted country, and he explored Canada from coast to coast. He fell in love with Northwestern Ontario, where he had a cabin on Lake of the Woods. Watercolour as his primary medium, although he painted in both acrylic and oils when they better suited his creative purpose. The transparency and brilliance of watercolours were both a joy and a challenge to him. The immediacy of the medium is one of the most appealing properties of Matousek watercolours.
Vojtech Matousek passed away in Winnipeg in October of 2015. His creative legacy consists of a body of work that is a dynamic visual record of Canadian landscape, and urban Winnipeg locations. His paintings are represented in corporate collections such as Great West Life Assurance Company; the Government of Manitoba; Marusin Corporation, Tokyo; and many private collections in Canada and abroad.
