    • Marcin Maciejowski

    Information

    The work of Marcin Maciejowski (born Babice, Poland in 1974) re-presents everyday images of our time. Using those already in popular circulation as starting points - found photographs, movies, posters, newspaper illustrations - his paintings naturally inherit the social and political implications of their source material. Current affairs, film stills, military and religious figures and film noir femmes fatales all populate his art. Witty and often ironic, these subjects are presented in a deliberate abandonment of the traditions associated with the history of painting. Echoing the speed of the digital reproduction, the slowness of his chosen, analogue, medium brings an examination of the role of painting in today'?s cultural world. 

    This will be the artists first exhibition in a public UK venue and will include paintings from 2003-12.
