Descrizione Opera / Biografia


REVIEW: Light is the master of my world” says Slawek, whose individual initiative in his work is one he announces as Reflections: one of a kind photography. The title marks a technique in which he follows his muse by seeking inspiring juxtapositions of sidewalk window displays, and sometimes windscreens, and the reflections of passers by and the architecture of the city that the glass simultaneously presents.
To discover this theater of light and image he is constantly adventuring with his camera, shooting stills and short movies.
ATTENDNYC - Anthony Liversidge: ”The dual compositions yield intriguing themes, uncovered by Slawek’s imagination, which are both culturally resonant and as evocative as any intentionally staged. This is true even though his open-minded search comes upon them unexpectedly, he says, in a voyage of discovery which is initially more serendipity than purposeful. Yet in being liberated from narrow expectation, in the manner of Henri Cartier-Bresson and other great photographers, he finds totally original and rather painterly compositions which he prints on aluminum plate with little cropping or alteration”.
Artwork description:
1. Song, camera recorded song ”Egalite, Liberte and Fraternite”. What do we know about it?
2.Madison Av.: for many years, while commuting from L.I. to Manhattan Iwould admire one of the most fascinating landscape, NYC.
2. Waiting for Godot, This unique photography represents ”Godot for the 21 st Century”, an absurdist play, in which two tramps wait endlessly and in vain for arrival of someone/something.
3. Vienna: always fascinated by reflections in glass I was intrigued by interesting reflecton in cars. I realized that cars could tell us wonderful stories.
