Gabriel Orlowski - Technicolor
The Shazar Gallery presents Technicolor, Gabriel Orlowski's first Italian solo show. The Polish artist has produced exclusively for the gallery in via P.Scura a photographic project focused on the ability of light to transform the physicality of the subjects portrayed, to change its essence in favor in an ethereal and autonomous consistency.
Born in 1989, the photographer, who lives and works in Warsaw, was recently named as one of the "Young Lynx" by Contemporary Lynx magazine, the list of the most important young Polish artists (2018). Author and collaborator of various magazines and art books, he is interested in digital languages and music and has exhibited in personal and collective exhibitions throughout Europe.
En Technicolor Orlowski shows the recent works conceived for the occasion, nine photographs that open windows on isolated, silent and balanced worlds in which the eye investigates a parallel reality made of lines and golden dust that define new perspectives.
The artist engages with the light a kind of serious game, hunting for potential discoveries: «I let a little light filter through, I let the room be flooded with a subtle aura of psychedelia, and I wait for it to insinuate itself near the threshold , that casts its shadow on the walls or slides on an expanse of water, avoiding any direct contact ... only then am I aware that it, the light is right there ".
The photographer's research takes the form of clean, clear, precise compositions in which, however, the light changes are always bright, warm, decorative, a peculiar approach that becomes his stylistic feature
