"Jakub Tomáš profiled on the Czech art scene as a prominent painter of the youngest generation who is trying to update the traditional medium of hanging image for the present. He takes painting as a living open structure, that must be always questioned, in order to be restored. Gradually he adopted a principle that allows him to relate critically to more general problems, not just the painting (at the same time aesthetic) questions of contemporary painting. Thomas's theses are usually associated with the ethical level of mass-reproduced and spread visibility that ultimately endangers both the artist's relationship to the history of art, yet to his own work and threaten to be mutualy alienated."
