On July 31 – August 16 the gal­lery will be closed due to the summer break


 

Raster presents a mul­tifaceted selec­tion of recent pain­tings and small-​scale sculp­tures, com­bining the method of bor­rowing images and shifting them between dif­ferent media: drawing, pain­ting, and three-​dimensional object.
The pain­tings by Paweł Althamer (born 1967) and Przemysław Matecki (born 1976) are the fruits of joint pain­ting ses­sions which the artists—sculptor and painter—conducted over the past three years in Matecki’s studio. These works com­bine elements of spon­taneous, figurative drawing, col­lage and assem­blage.
The latest multi-​layered pain­tings by Zbigniew Rogal­ski (born 1974) from the series My Col­lec­tion allude to works by the greats of con­tem­porary art, significant for the artist, on which Rogal­ski projects luminous afterimages from his own studio.
The pain­tings by Emilia Kina (born 1990) com­bine illusionist and 3D elements. The motif of a cur­tain, charac­teristic of her works, alludes to photographic and theatrical set design, but also to the theory of the pain­terly image. The cur­tain may con­ceal a secret, but at the same time per­forms a muf­fling func­tion, insulating off from an excess of sur­roun­ding images.
The objects by Olaf Brzeski (born 1975) are a three-​dimensional elaboration of the artist’s drawings. His signature line and sur­realist imagination merge in the form of intimate, cast-​iron sculp­tures and bowls decorated in the clay, executed in a traditional ceramic work­shop in Tabriz, north-​western Iran. The experience of living and wor­king in an ear­thquake zone resonates in the fragile material of these ves­sels and the delicate line drawing.
