Nowak, Piotr

Piotr Nowak works thematically with conceptual thoughts around infinity as an abstract size, spatial investigations and human ability to perception through artworks volume, texture and recognition factor. With his art he is keen to produce the feeling of being in limbo, an intermediate state between recognition and wonder, between security and uncertainty. He wants to ask questions about the relationship between sensory perception and capacity for imagination, illusion, dreams and changed mind states, and investigates phenomena such as gravity, balance, contrast and volume.
