In his paintings, graphic art, and photogrames Pavel Hayek focuses upon visual material at his direct disposal, which also reflects his approach to living nature and to things within his current reach and contact.
He does not want to attract attention to the exclusiveness of his models; quite the other way round: he focuses upon their ordinariness, their everyday character. Just the patterns the shapes of which we may not realize during the “normal”, the utilitarian contact, appear to be essential for him.
Beyond any doubt, the most important feature of these Hayek’s works is obviously his understanding of the whole picture area as a certain stucture sui generis.
