AboutMarko Dutka's new work 'Baroque & Roll' takes as its inspiration the 'Baroque' or misshapen pearl. His stunning new portraits are from an ongoing project exploring, documenting and celebrating individuals in all walks of life who add colour, richness and diversity to our culture.
'Baroque' pearls don't hang well together" says Dutka, "They can't be forced into clusters and their beauty relies upon hanging separately, claiming all their own attention." These individuals hang separately, revelling in playing with a language that they create themselves, dancing across the boundary between the group and the individual. Dutka's work challenges the homogeneity of modern society with striking simplicity and directness.
