“It’s all about making something that is not doable.”
Jiří (Georg) Dokoupil

Jiří (Georg) Dokoupil has been putting his art on canvases since the 1970s - and for much of that time without a brush. He constantly reinvents the production of artworks, expresses his creativity with the most diverse materials, such as breast milk or fruit juices, and thinks "outside the box". His oeuvre now comprises about 140 series, which are not at all alike. He is a quick-change artist in the contemporary art world. Like a pop culture star, he completely reinvents his art with each series.
The early flight from his homeland and the associated deprivation of a national, social and personal identity meant the artist never developed a fixed style of his own. (Compare Wilfried Dickhoff, Soap Bubble Thinking, p.5, in: Jiří (Georg) Dokoupil. Soap Bubble Paintings, Berlin 2015) The Soap Bubble Paintings series is one of his longest-running series. The work offered here, "Mis Mus Sian", is part of it.
Standing on a ladder with a metal hoop, Jiří (Georg) Dokoupil lowers his soap bubbles onto the canvas. He uses soap suds mixed with shimmering pigments, the exact composition of which he keeps strictly secret. The individual layers of soap bubbles, their shimmering pigments and superimpositions create a sphere of their own. The result is a depth undreamed of in a two-dimensional work, which can only be properly experienced through viewing the work in person. The soap bubbles glitter dynamically on the deep blue background of the painting and evoke movement through their different shapes and orientations. Due to the enormous format of over 250 x 300 cm, the experience of the work is like visiting a giant aquarium. At first, one is overwhelmed by the work’s abundance and appearance and, as time goes by, one dives deeper and deeper into its cosmos. The artist leaves it up to the owner to hang the work in portrait or landscape format. For this reason, he has signed the reverse on two sides.
