…” One can use Art as a vessel of remembrance ”…
Deep Time; the concept of Geologic Time; a system of chronological measurement that relates stratigraphy (layering of rock layers in the earth) to time.
Our own timelines: marked with world war events and volcanic eruptions: it is these explosions of destruction that MARK the passing of our time.
The abstract works shown and chosen for Christian Sawalski’s exhibition DEEP TIME, express a strata of peace and conflict.
Iron, Salt, Scratching through remnants of charcoal, bitumen and paint, Christian sets the restraints (canvas/other) allowing the materials to decide how to react… his work is in a constant state of chance, flux, decay… an Alchemical, seemingly *magical* process of transformation, creation, combination.
