Zbigniew Rogalski

Zbigniew Rogalski (1974)

Lives in Warsaw. Works in Warsaw.

With the exemplification of visual illusion, such as reflection and obliteration, Rogalski is questioning reality and its mode of representation. Zbigniew Rogalski has often been called ‘a director of paintings’, as he moves with great ease both in the regions of painting, photography and film, mixing them and taking advantage of several disciplines. Through the exercise of painting itself, questions are raised, encouraging the viewers’ interpretation of what is seen while simultaneously forming a critical position. This position is repeatedly obscured and hinted at through painterly solutions as well as the inclusion of photographic material and/or the allusion there of.
