By appointment on Sunday

Denisa Prochazka is a Czech-Canadian sculptor. She graduated from O.C.A.D University in Toronto, majoring in Sculpture-Installation and continued her studies in Florence, Italy, where she advanced specializing in figurative sculpture. She felt a deep connection to classical sculpture which has influenced and shaped the direction of her creative path today. Denisa is greatly inspired by native spirituality, contemporary as well as ancient art.

Denisa grew up in her mother's ceramic studio being introduced to clay at a very young age. She specializes in the creation of large relief sculptures combining classical and contemporary materials and techniques. Large and imposing while poetic and feminine, Denisa's art is intended to be spiritually healing and powerful in its symbolic intension. Using clay as the canvas on which she communicates, the artist offers us imagery that is vibrant with mystical and historical elements. Through her work, she offers a very personal look into the necessity to contrast past with present, personal with universal, reality with dream state.
