Entertainment Art Little Ruin by Andrzej Nowicki

Little Ruin by Andrzej Nowicki

Pin It

Drawing on his carefully considered archive of photographs, Nowicki uses both found and auto biographical images as a point of departure in this body of work, blurring the boundary’s between personal history and invented narrative.

Often surreal and otherworldly, Nowicki’s watercolors and collages are inspired by the effect of time on memory, and its ability to obscure certain details whilst revealing and even constructing others. The merging of the past and present, the real and the imagined are recurring themes that are explored through his use of personal symbolism.
 
Born in 1981 in Kielce in Poland, before moving to South Africa in 1989, Andrezj Nowicki completed his Masters degree at the Michaelis School of Fine Art in 2008 and has subsequently held two highly successful solo exhibitions at Whatiftheworld. He has participated in numerous group exhibitions abroad and is currently based in Melbourne Australia. The exhibition will run until 08 October, 2011.
