New series "Arcimboldiana"

A set of eight photo pastiches based on the work of the Italian Mannerist, often referred to as the precursor of surrealism, Giuseppe Arcimboldo. The inspiration to create pastiches is a way of my artistic expression.

Photographs were printed on Hahnemuhle Photo Paper Rag 308gsm, 100% cotton in pigment-free printing technology with museum-like media properties, which ensures optimum quality and long lasting prints. They are attached to a passe-partout without the use of glue, specially adapted for this purpose, to protect the printout. Each print was manually signed, numbered with the attached Certificate of Authenticity. The complete set consists of eight 50x70cm photos for a 10-piece collectible circulation and two non-selling copies labeled AP (Artist Proof).

"MEATING WITH ART"- EXHIBITION - Gallery 6, Wroclaw, Poland.

As part of my academic assignment at Academy of Fine Arts in Wrocław, I was given a task to photograph "meat" as a subject. 

I decided to use processed meat because of its round form, which gave me a very graphic and clean element to work with. I made it my central piece by locating it in the middle of color busy backgrounds, which were different details of my abstract paintings. Filled with symbols, yet not defined I wanted to leave space for the viewer to find their own meaning in those pieces allowing the mind, eye, and heart to soak up the details and the unexpected combination of the two. 

EDIT: In 2016 this series was exhibited at Gallery 6 at Academy of Fine Arts in Wrocław and in 2017 moved to Zaułek Kaćmy Gallery, as well located at Academy of Fine Arts.
