It started as a 60 pound piece of molten glass. Once placed in the hands of Jaromír Rybák it became a technical and artistic masterpiece with very humble name.

There are a select group of artists who are able to give added value to their work with their name. Masters such as Rembrandt, Monet and Picasso were visionaries, and the significance of their work is equally as important as their creation. In the centuries old craft of art glass, Jaromír Rybák is one such master.

It is only in the hands of a true master glass sculptor that a work such as "The Fish Bowl" can exist. Light radiates from the substantial cast bowl in rich hues of amber and ruby. Peering into the bowl one is treated to the illusion of a school of fish swimming in arctic sea. But the eye plays tricks. Some see candied sugar starting to crack, while others are taken in by the geometric patterns which seem to float deep within a liquid like base as if suspended for eternity.

No matter what the individual eye sees, few simply walk past the sculpture. It is hypnotic, it is dreamlike, and it is a higher level of quality and creativity thus evidenced by the fascination which encompasses the viewer.

Jaromír Rybák

"My work is my destiny. The longer I am engaged with art, the more I am convinced that seeking my own joy and pleasure is my primary objective. Art should emanate from the author’s heart. I am inspired by nature, history, ancient cultures and sciences: astronomy, physics, chemistry, and various mysteries.

Glass, iron, clay, drawing and painting offer different ways of expression. I create balance among them appreciating the harmony of contradictions that are the basis of our known existence. New friendships are created when others identify with one of my creations. We share the same wavelength. This is the meaning of my work.”

Born in 1952, at the height of communist oppression in then Czechoslovakia, the classically trained Rybak studied at the School of Applied Arts and Glass in Zelezny Brod, a town famous for its production of glass since the 11th century, which provided the skills Jaromir Rybak would need.  

In 1973 he began his studies under Professor Stanislav Libensky at the Academy of Applied Arts in Prague. It was an explosive time for glass art. Libensky’s influence was a turning point encouraging a gifted young artist to break free to become a pioneer in his field.  

Rybák’s work was considered radical by the communist government and was kept underground for years. With the Velvet Revolution and the fall of the Soviet rule, Rybak’s freedom of expression exploded. He became internationally recognized for his skill and creativity.

Today Rybák’s sculptures and installations are featured in some of the most prestigious galleries and collections in the world. He is a member of Rubikon, a groundbreaking group of Bohemian glass artists, and has amassed over two hundred group exhibitions and over seventy solo exhibits, all while teaching workshops in Spain, Canada, Japan, Australia, The United States and his native Czech Republic.

It is an honor for Z Folio Gallery to share the work of Jaromír Rybák with you.
