IAN WIECZOREK - Visual Artist

Go to content



Much of Wieczorek's artistic practice is concerned with the dynamics of contemporary society and the increasing influence of digital technology in locating social and cultural identity, exploring perceived objectivity and how we negotiate 'reality'. A major strand has involved the making of paintings based on low-resolution images harvested from the internet. Stripped of their specific contexts, the images transcend their original documentary intentions and assume more malleable, subjective significance - 'poor' images that embody more powerful associative connotations - while also proposing an aesthetic reappraisal of this found 'digital static' through its rendering in a traditional visual medium.
