Palo Macho
"…And What about You, Wind?"
 
Glass Art from Slovakia
Palo Macho (born 1965) is, indeed, one of the most original contemporary Slovak glass artists, known mostly for his innovative approach to glass. The uniqueness of his position lies in the fact that he has been working with painting on and in glass for a long time, and has achieved remarkable results and recognition at home as well as abroad. He is both a painter and a glassmaker moving at the border of two disciplines – painting, i.e. the art of free expression, and glassmaking.
 
Palo Macho's work with glass is a highly intellectual activity that is intertwined with his technical skills in a masterly fashion. Although he does not rely on a purposeless beauty or mystique of the glass, the resulting works carry a strong emotional drive and an associative potential that urges to meditation and thinking.
 
Palo Macho (born 1965, Strezenice, Slovakia) is, indeed, one of the most original contemporary Slovak glass artists, known mostly for his innovative approach to glass. The uniqueness of his position lies in the fact that he has been working with painting on and in glass for a long time, and has achieved remarkable results and recognition at home as well as abroad. He is both a painter and a glassmaker moving at the border of two disciplines – painting, a free art discipline, and glassmaking. Macho prefers working with panel glass, shaping and forming it hot, allowing him to create two-sided relief-paintings, object-paintings. The fact that when melting the glass pane, he combines several layers of paint complemented by an uncomplicated line motif on both the underside and the surface, gives his object-paintings relief and depth, creating the illusion of inner space as well as of a plot. Despite the fact that, for Palo Macho, working with glass is a highly intellectual activity standing on mental deliberation, which in turn stands on mastered technological skills, and although he does not rely on the purposeless beauty or mystique of glass, the resulting works carry a strong emotional drive and an association potential that cause to meditate and think.
 
Macho’s next exhibition entitled "... and what about you, Wind?" (opening Feb. 11, 2016) is taking place between February 12 and May 8, 2016 at the Finish Glass Museum in Riihimäki. It will be showing a selection of works that originated in the last decade within different series like Figures in Landscapes, Vessels, Good Vessels, Circles, Shirts of my Childhood, Architectures, and Solitudes. Palo Macho’s new monograph, written by Katarína Bajcurová and Sylva Petrová, is to be launched on this occasion.
