MATRIX 213: Some Forgotten Place presents original approaches to landscape painting by eight internationally acclaimed younger artists from around the world, who are not yet well known in the U.S. The group includes Wilhelm Sasnal, the most successful younger Polish painter today and internationally regarded as one of the most important contemporary artists of younger generation.
"Wilhelm Sasnal's works often differ so much from one another that one could assume they had been painted by numerous artists. They share, however, an authorial sensibility that reflects political, moral, and aesthetic aspects of reality. The paintings exist in some respects as formal exercises, toying with the conventions of representation and using perspective and focus to disrupt our expectations. Sasnal's subjects come across as isolated, in a state of suspension, waiting for something as if interrupted." - Heidi Zuckerman Jacobson, Curator, the Phyllis C. Wattis MATRIX Program.
