Raf Zawistowski's debut solo exhibition focuses on the relationship between materiality and his use of religious iconography. In the works presented, thick encaustic paint (a mixture of wax and oil paint) is applied heavily alongside day-glow fluorescent colours to create images that explore an area which Zawistowski refers to as existing between the sublime and the anti-sublime". By doing this, he sets up a dialogue between image and the materiality of paint in order to produce works which seem to exude what the Neo-Geo artist Peter Halley once referred to as "the after glow of low budget mysticism".
