"The Crossing series of paintings reflects both current socio-political events and a continuing narrative: the border as a physical barrier, its implications and its porosity. While the phenomenon of such borders has existed throughout history, recent events have bestowed a fresh significance. Avoiding commentary of an overtly politicised nature, Wieczorek’s work explores the border as a concept, and while the works reference recent reportage imagery, the removal of specific context offers a more universal reflection on human resilience and perseverance."
