Linear abstract compositions by Zdeněk Sýkora are characteristic not only of his visual expression but also of his unique method of work. Sýkora was one of the first artists in the world to use computers as a means of creativity. Already since the early 1960s, he used computer calculations to determine nuances of colour, composition, density and direction of the lines. This mathematical accuracy collides with the idea of spontaneity of abstract art as every stroke of paint combines a creative impulse with a scientific logic. Sykora's work can be found in collections all over the world. Another painting from the 'Line-series' e.g. is treasured by Centre Pompidou, Paris.
