About the artworkThis artwork, as all of Marek`s pieces can be custom sized.This piece was taken in Kefalonia Greece."I use the medium of photography freely and instinctively, at times beyond its conventional role, form and expectations. Constantly experimenting, discovering new meanings. Attempting to move imaginations. From sharp, colourful geometric shots to soft and calming landscapes. From intensely minimalist to intensely complex. Looking for beauty and poetry in the mundane. Hunting for treasures.Photographs chosen to present in collaboration with Contempop Gallery are all concentrated around ocean and atmosphere, which are definitely my favourite photographic subject.In these photographs I’m exploring vast, natural spaces that surround us. Humans in my creations are often reduced to tiny, anonymous figures, lost in endlessness. I want to show our smallness in a face of limitlessness of space and time."
