Warsaw Gallery weekend 2016
MAN ON TREE
The works of Rafał Bujnowski continually engage in a dialogue with the fundamental properties of painting. The artist is interested in what paintings are essentially for, how they function in architectural and social space, but also the manner of their creation. These considerations have led him to radical solutions and far-reaching formal restraint. The phenomenon of his painting consists in the constant balancing between representation and the illusion of representation. The painting process, often purely mechanical, leads to surprising results and launches another, symmetrical, process of reading the completed painting, which depends on the variable lighting, distance, and the involvement of the viewer.
