Zbigniew Rogalski

BORN 1974, Dąbrowa Białostocka

Rogalski’s paintings oscillate between abstraction and realism. Their main subject is the painterly medium itself. The artist deals with the phenomenon of perception and the physiology of vision, his art often referencing and playing with spatial illusions. Rogalski graduated from the Poznań Academy of Fine Arts, with a degree in Prof Jerzy Kałucki’s studio in 1999. Between 2000-2002, he operated in a duo with Hubert Czerepok as The Magisters, arranging absurd situations and documenting them on photography and video. Rogalski took part in the Site Santa Fe Biennale (2008). In 2006, he had a solo show at the Kunsthalle Mannheim.

Description

Rogalski’s paintings are like demarcating personal territory – an inviolable sphere of basal interpersonal emotions and relationships. In such territory, a strange scene takes place: a private production of 100-euro banknotes. Two people (resembling the artist and his then-partner, now wife, Karolina) sitting on a carpet laboriously copy a pattern on banknote-size pieces of paper. In this case, painting about painting is also painting about counterfeiting. The banknotes are just an excuse, because Rogalski above all enjoys discussing the painter’s duties.
