Jarmila Kostliva's work explores abstract and subconscious scenery as motifs to describe the idea of imaginary reality. Using symbolic narratives and allegorical images as patterns, Kostliva creates meditative environments, which suggest the expansion of art and life's reality as dialog. With the conceptual approach, she is approaching a wide scale of subjects in a multilayered way. Her work doesn’t reference recognizable forms. The results are deconstructed to the extent that meaning is shifted and possible interpretation becomes multifaceted. Her works isolate biological elements or objects. By doing so, new sequences are created which reveal an inseparable relationship between abstract and intellectual. Born in Prague, trained as a ballet dancer, performing in theater in her native Prague, in the past, she has always been a participant of performing as well as visual arts. Music, dramatic arts, dance, and cinema are all influences that imbue her work with personal insights and drama. She currently lives and works in Vancouver, BC Canada.
