Artist Rafal Karcz Fuses Art with Photography

The current exhibition focuses both the artist's and viewers' attention on various iterations of human faces, one of the traditional genres of art history. Frequently de-populated and executed with the artist's characteristic somber palette of rather monochromatic colors, Karcz's faces create an evocative atmosphere that is simultaneously disquieting, banal, and even, on occasions, gloomy or sinister. His fleeting glimpses of these motives are often ambiguous - both artist and viewer participate in the viewing of the scene and yet are somehow also clearly excluded from belonging in them...
Albert Wang, art curator, IAO PROJECTS, Salt Lake City, USA
Polish artist Rafal Karcz's artwork is nothing short of eclectic.  His aesthetic displays a mix of pop art and expressionist influences depicted both in his technique and subject matter.  His approach is a refreshing take on the use of watercolors, acrylic, dark ink and soft lines of graphite, resulting in an abstract avant garde style. 

visions painted on the old films, drowned in a fabulous spectacle of color.  The association with photography emerges almost immediately.  (Karzc)
The artist's postmodern vision encapsulates the concept of the condition of the contemporary person - the characters fuse into the cultural background. "They are also very diverse, often lost, and constantly seeking inspiration" (Karcz).

The work portrays the artist's worldview, one which embraces his Polish heritage and questions the "mentality of the contemporary human being and the condition of his emotions."
