Plein-air painting became the characteristic art technique for Bednarova as she focuses on the immersion to the landscape of North-East India, where she currently lives and works. Walking in pristine untouched nature and discovering hidden sceneries of rain forests may be in future only utopic recall stored in our memory. Bednarova works with the image of nature which we used to know. The paintings on canvas by acrylic or on raw silk by natural pigments tell the story about the wild nature, which can inspire humans for survival by its biodiversity and ability to grow in the uneasy terrains. Documenting the sceneries from jungles by landscape painting is an attempt to portray the wild nature and preserve those images of harmony, mutuality and co-existence which are disappearing from human eyes.
