Mikołaj Moskal

b. 1985, Kraków

Painter, creator of drawings and installations. He studied graphic arts at the Academy of Fine Arts in Kraków and co-founded the New Roman collective (with Kaja Gliwa, Jagna Lewandowska, Damian Nowak, Paweł Olszczyński and Wojciech Orlik). He usually paints minimalist compositions in black and white. Rarely naming his pieces, he creates abstract images or observed elements of reality, enormously graphic, often resembling posters, toying with perception. He lives and works in Kraków.

The Lie of the Land

2009, site specific installation, variable dimensions

Mikołaj Moskal made this sketch for his spatial intervention at the exhibition Blue Almost White: Playing with the Collection of the ING Polish Art Foundation at the LETO Gallery in Warsaw. Moskal placed white forms sprouting from the ceiling and floor, in a suggestion of icicle stalactites and stalagmites, in the central exhibition space. The freezing water symbolism alludes to the title of the show, the word “almost” hinting at a helplessness accompanying any attempt to name one of the fundamental components of art: colour.
