Olaf Brzeski

BORN 1975,

Olaf Brzeski (b. 1975) is a graduate of the Eugeniusz Geppert Academy of Art and Design in Wroclaw. He creates video works and uses drawings, however sculpture remains his main interest. The artist uses the spectrum of classical methods of this art in an experimental manner. His visionary imagination goes hand in hand with the awareness of the material. Sculpture also provides Brzeski with a range of topics; he uses portraits, nudes, a study of the model, a sculpture in motion. Stach Szbłowski on the exhibition at the Center for Contemporary Art Ujazdowski Castle in Warsaw wrote: "The artist makes a deep introspection, looking to his instincts, desires and imaginations, confronts the dark side of his nature. The titled "Self-Seeker" is Brzeski himself, but in this ambiguous, self-focused character, everyone will find a part of his/herself. "

Description

“A short sketch of self-examination in which I use the motif of a game I once played with the kids of a couple I know. The game is to draw each other’s portraits without looking at the paper. The results were amusing.

Here I pose for the camera in my favourite way while retaining a bit of portrait styling. Without taking my eyes off myself I sketch the reflection. I don’t look at the paper and the drawing hand tries to do its best. The result is this clumsy ‘something’. O.B.”
