Paintings by Zuzana Rabina Bachoríková bear witness to a long-time effort to create her own expression resulting for her personal feeling and strongly experienced colour chord. She herself says to be an introvert. That´s why her paintings are intimate and personal too. She materializes images that can be seen in meditation: images that may be glimpsed under one´s eyelids. Each painting has many layers of meaning, a lot of symbolism and fantasy, trandscending the boundaries of time and space. Each composition is based on effort to use maximum imagination, on bold colouring, and sometimes on sharp colour pigments as dominant structural elements and on the author´s independent poetics resulting from projection and conjunction of different semantic contexts.

In a word, the works of Zuzana Rabina Bachoríková have their aura and moreover, they can seem as dreams and be anticipated as connections. Zuzana Rabina Bachoríková can mould a vision and has a ability to stir it in others. It´s alsobecouse of extraordinary thruthfulness of her works, as she is driven by an unquenchable desire to express what must be expressed. This desire for expression is but not at the expense of painting. To the contrary - even if the creative elements is often subjected to the expression, the spiritual appeal, the artist´s hand is ever more experienced and the colour sense is more refined. Each handling of the brush shows it is not purposeless but driven by the
author´s sensibility. Zuzana Rabina Bachoríková is an inspiring author, whose images never leave the viewer lukewarm.
