The alternative photography of Petra T. Ruzickova resembles painting or graphic processes and techniques. She has produced photographic palimpsests: labyrinthine compositions, collages where elements of reality and dream fade into one another. The result is an image crammed with concealed symbols and metaphors, conveying the inner side of reality.
She has been presenting her photographic work regularly since the beginning of the 1990s (France, Germany, Czech Republic, Italy, Austria, Brazil, and Denmark). Since 2000, she has exhibited primarily in the USA, especially in the galleries of New York (June Bateman Fine Art, Monique Goldstrom Gallery etc.). The work of Petra T. Ruzickova features in many public and private collections.
