Every year during summer season (July - September), Ľudovít Fulla Gallery presents a project from the cycle Colleagues - selected works of one of the Slovak modernism classics, who was a contemporary of Ľudovít Fulla. It shows not only masterpieces of the particular artist, but possible mutual relations, "influences", and inspirations as well.

The sixth exhibition (after Martin Benka, Gustáv Mallý, Miloš A. Bazovský, Janko Alexy, and Zolo Palugyay) is dedicated to the "colleague" Ester Šimerová-Martinčeková. Still at school, Fulla with Galanda, the "Siamese twins" of our new avant-garde, planned to found an artistic group together with Ester Šimerová-Martinčeková (1909 - 2005); however, the intention got lost. She studied in Paris, where she got humanly and artistically closer to her teacher, the Russian Cubism and Futurism artist Alexandra Exterova. In her works influenced by her stay in France, she paid homage to visual forms of life in modern civilisation.

Šimerova´s work arose from her authentic encounter with late Cubism, the incentives of which she further cultivated and developed in her own way. She refined the images through deeper sense of natural forms abstraction, by balancing of relations between elements of decorative flatness and linear dynamics. The result of her effort to connect the worlds of civilisation and nature was artistic, precisely handled and spiritual modernistic form.
