Her paintings have been described as "visionary works". From the neo-surrealist's perspective, she managed to fascinate art collectors around the world. Her most important provocative painting, which describes an apocalyptic event called "05.10.2020", stirs up the excitement among art connoisseurs, as it awakens both the feeling of distress and calm. As a skeptical dreamer, she is focused on comparing old times and current events from the angle of an observer. Feeling a change in social behavior and the natural environment, she is anticipating escalation and clarification. Her work reflects the tendency of a woman who, through growth in several political situations and several countries, has developed a view of the world through the clash of contradictions.
Rosana's tendency in art is not following a trend, a cultural stream, or a fashion wave. Her production depends on the feeling that is tied to a given time, space and the message. Her paintings can come to us from the distant past or breathe the atmosphere of the future. Each scene absorbes as much of its environment as possible, therefore her technique and style vary from picture to picture.
The media she uses for her paintings are mostly canvases, acrylic, oil paints, synthetics, sand, plaster, charcoal and pencils. She likes modern abstractions, but also chiaroscuro. Her paintings represent a neo-surrealist era where she can immediately use all her skills and dreams at once.
Development, idols and mentors
Filling the world around her with images and shaping it to satisfy her gently narcissistic nature began at an early age. She painted 3D pictures at the age of 4, then had her first public appearances at the age of 6, drawing buildings in the town's square. By the age of 14 she has filled her home with paintings and sculptures. Having both very artistic parents, she has spent her childhood among the best of the Czech cultural and creative society including her mentors and teachers: Karel Žaluda, Jiří (Giorgio) Stejskal, Věra Boudníková-Špánová, David LLoyd, Jaroslav Domiter. She is mesmerized by the works of Cesar Santos, Steven DaLuz, Hieronymus Bosch, Salvador Dalí, Peter Paul Rubens and others.
Permanent life abroad since 1991 has offered a wide variety of possibilities where her style of creation has found fertile soil. The collection of her art can be found in private collections, but also in business and corporate premises in many EU countries.
It was in the UK that she managed to maintain a stable client base and at the same time develop her style with several new modern techniques and media. It was a 3D art, street art, graffiti and music production for British TV channels like Channel U, BBC Channel 4 and Lion TV, where she met her crowd in the creative heart of London. She had participated in exhibitions and opportunities for artistic production, as well as offers for creative positions in the music industry.
Workshops and merits
The two main workshops are in Clacton-on-Sea (UK) and Bílovec (CZ), where she stores the majority of her latest work in the recently restored 18th century countryside estate. Her newly aquired premiss of Gallery Montfort (Gallery M) is undergoing a vast reconstruction and will be oficially open to public in May 2020.
She participates in a variety of charity projects in Europe and the US, which has earnt her awards by City Councillors and the White House. Together with other awarded participants she was given the International Prize Velazquez 2019 in MEAM European Modern Art Museum Bracelona on the 06.04.2019, International Prize Michelangelo received in Brancaccio Palace in Rome on the 14.07.2019 and two Awards of Excellence as the finalist of INTERNATIONAL CONTEMPORARY MASTERS in Santa Barbara (CA).
(Edward Charles Marsh, London 2019)
This is me...
I leave my coffee often unattended for hours,
fully submerged into the world in my eyes,
locked up in my room by my own need
to strip down outside influences & enjoy the silence.
The plain space where I am my own personal Jesus
and where I can experience the halo of my own past,
gives birth to a haze of moves and colours.
I am a little 15 again and the insticts of sweeping
brushes across the naked canvas never let me down.
Waiting for the night to fall, where I feel sacred.

SOLO EXHIBITION IN BRUŠPERK AT THE ART CENTRE AND GALLERY CHAGALL FROM 12.09. - 06.11.2019 (starting with a verni at 17:00)
Brušperk is an ancient town in the heart of Northern Moravia. Exposition of paintings in the oldest Public House in the country will be conceptuated as a battle between what we were and what we are becoming.
Who knows me a bit more will discover, that I love giving unwanted and unloved ideologies, dreams and objects a new lease of life. Some of these painting represent the nostalgia of the romantic past.
Second and contradicting part is the revelations of feeling I have about our future. Being environment aware, I see the logical path we walk on, which is demonstrated in my canvases.
I will guide you through the exhibition personally and tell you about the stories behind the paintings.

EXHIBITION AT CHATEAU BÍLOVEC (CZ) 27.04. - 27.08.2019
The generous premises of Chateau Bílovec provides for several atmospheres at once.
The castle Theatre Café will offer more permanent home for the collection of paintings, which are in classical style, targeting more conservative art collectors and fitting very well within the castle rustic interior. These paintings are usually framed in lovingly restored gilded antique frames and the themes are of a more romantic flavour, pleasing the everyday-spectators, who will include the unique piece in their everyday life.
The top floor, specifically the music hall and auditorium, will host the temporary collection, which in its measurements and neo-surrealist style offers a fully different vision and perhaps an exclusive insight into the mind of the creator. The paintings are themed in fantasque flavour, keeping in touch with hints of street art, comics and sci-fi.
The visions of alternative worlds, scenes and feelings are heavily imprinted in both collections, covering the private and also the corporate clientele.
INTERVIEW WITH CZECH RADIO OSTRAVA (in Czech language)
Interview with Naďa Čvančarová from the radio station ČESKÝ ROZHLAS about the life long journey through virtual worlds and final closure of the circle in the process of return home after almost 3 decades abroad.
Current exhibitions for 2019 are a rewiew and a look back at the international experience, which she reflects in her art. Returning to her native roots brings with itself time of clarity, peace and focus on new visions to be captured.
"ICE LAKE CITY" will travel across the pond!
We have had multiple orders on this painting and considering its technique, it will be rather hard to replicate it. Perhaps the interested parties will find another darling to purchase or be happy to wait for a simmilar painting like this one to be born.
For now, "ICE LAKE CITY" goes to United States shortly after it had its floating frame fitted!
"LEAP OF FAITH" is leaving us!
Saatchi Art has found a new home for this giant. It is going across the whole world to Australia. The crate for this massive painting was built by the local wood works made to measure to ensure a safe transport. The symbolic of this painting is very significant, as some people see in it the reverse mirroring image of a Tarot Card of "The Hang Man", which symbolises a change in life, total turnaround and a vision from the opposite angle.
I personally see the painting as a logical result of an impulse of change in my life, where I aim to approach so far not exercised need to challenge my visions I want to paint. It is the answer to our so many questions of what to do with ourselves, and the answer is simply: "We cannot know the answer to all we question as it would kill us. We need to trust the universe, god or whatever leads our steps".
