Svobodová's architecturally inspired works feature modernistic geometrical compositions in pure color tones. Employing a laborious technique of applying special acrylic gels to glaze, her compositions play with spatial possibilities and impossibilities—hidden anticipations only partially uncovered. Her works suggest that it is sometimes better to stay in a realm of uncertainty, groping between what appears to be a reality, yet elludes any attempt to grasp it. 

In 2009, Svobodová participated in a fine arts fellowship at the Universidade do Estado do Rio de Janeiro in Brazil. Her work has been exhibited at the Czech National Gallery of Modern Art, the Czech National Bank, the Ministry of Culture in Prague, the Franz Kafka House, and at Zahorian & Van Espen in Bratislava, SK. Her work has been featured on ArtalkThe Jealous CuratorWallpaperArtNet News, and in The New Criterion, and was declared an emerging artist to invest in in 2015 by Saatchi chief curator Rebecca Wilson. Svobodová lives and works in Prague, CZ.
