Artist Statement of Aleksander Grzybek

In my practice, I am trying to use motifs taken from everyday situations and places around me. The range of the objects is varied from literal depiction to de-objectification form,  sometimes unclear but simplified. These motifs often repeated on my paintings have the function. The subject of the paintings is not the motif presented on the painting or the critical tool but it is as kind some sort of pictorial subterfuge to encourage to see and points away throughout this meaningful object. Nevertheless, our brain always tries to connect the visual picture which we see with the familiar object or something that we already have seen. In the scientist world, this phenomenon is called PAREIDOLIA. It provokes the viewer to find interpretation relate to an experienced or known subject. This interpretation is a part of the game for the audiences were the actual final though where I am leading to is to understand that this is not the meaning as such.  Following that this observation and skipping the pareidolia open up the new path and let it see not as single paintings and analyzed each but look at the whole installation. Curated often in contingency context the study case allow to juxtapose known subject in new context.
