The man-made and organic objects are covered in monochromic paint and arranged to mimic a classical still life setting, an epitome of commonly agreed picture of reality. The process renders many objects unidentifiable and thus visually equal, creating a primal, intuitive scene, with intention to aspire the viewer to absorb the content “as seen” without any need to explain the narrative and to only rest in contemplative state of mind.

Art Golacki was born in Wroclaw, Poland where he also accomplished a Master Degree in Fine Arts. Since being granted a British citizenship in 2006 he lives and works in United Kingdom, currently in Millport, Scotland. A great admirer of buddhist philosophy, Art believes that through inherited or taught pattern of constant judging and labelling we unintentionally preventing ourselves from seeing primordial, empty nature of everything. His art projects are intended to evoke a ‘second look’ at many condition and aspects of life.
