This exhibition presents a selection of objects from the late 1980’s through the artist’s most recent works in which chronology loses its significance to create holistic and interpenetrating arrangements.
Natkaniec’s works – as well as the nature of his artistic practice – surmise a distinctive and hermetic form developed over the years that has become resistant to outside influence and fashion. Creating complicated, extremely detailed installations, he employs a number of motifs (chair, brush, flag, hand, sphere, triangle) that are replicated, thus permuting into painstaking and labyrinthine landscapes.
Natkaniec himself describes his objects as “impractical and clumsy sculptures”, in which their disturbing disorder is intertwined with charming and humorous motifs. The artist’s works become narration for the process of transforming paintings into three-dimensional objects. Natkaniec, using materials widely-known to painters, such as canvas, wood and paper, reinterprets their potential, creating installations that blur the boundary between painting and sculpture.
