Martin Machacek's paintings express our ever-changing views of our surroundings. Much like nature, whose magnificence is accessible to everyone, his artwork raises awareness of the beauty of our own surroundings in a way that anyone can appreciate. He takes notice of the man-made world and the natural world we live in and tries to express the harmony in both worlds as one, where imperfections are accepted and are so often, the most beautiful and memorable parts of our existences.
