Among the latest works by Olaf Brzeski presented at the Adventure exhibition, there is a short series of intimate objects with a decorative and functional character. These are original, ceramic vases with attached ashtrays.
The set of in-glaze painted and triple-fired ceramic plates bears a Latin title: Post Tenebras Lux, which mean “after darkness comes the light”.
This unique object of painted black steel, attached to the ceiling, evokes a certain state of mind of the artist.
Dorota is a monumental portrait of a short woman – her 280 cm heigh body is prenaturally large and overscaled, yet surprisingly flimsy.
The monumental yet frail and shaky composition is an illusionistic trick of a sculptor.
The object is a drawing recreated in a 20:1 scale using welded steel bars. It is based on a sketch made by the artist after staring straight into the sun for 10 seconds.
