When art becomes a journey into the world dell'onirico.
Young painter of Polish, German by adoption, is an author Piotr Rambowski symbolic of the general trend of the young artists of today to the dream, imagination, fantasy. Piotr, thirties, has already in his resume a number of collective and personal, including a real gem, a project called Face Woods: oils on canvas based on a reflection of heroism Facebook. The site allows the artist to follow step by step the exciting evolution of his artistic career: a progressive detachment from reality that a substantial urban landscapes, tractors, bodies, the streets of Leipzig, the estrangement from reality and the choice of new subjects: spirits and extraordinary creatures.
Who are the characters of your most recent work, these funny little animals?
Fantasy, pure invention. In fact, it was Neo Rauch (one of the great masters of contemporary German) to inspire me. He told me to look at the floor and imagine something, so I came up with this thing, and I painted, simple! But I also find inspiration by setting a wall or ceiling! They are called just that: an Inspiration, Inspiration Inspiration 2 and 3.
Your first work depicts the real world. The most recent works mark the transition towards a visionary painting. How do you explain this transformation?
Usually, I basavo on photographic material for paintings, and I strongly limited. I've occasionally had to paint fantasy figures, but he is especially n the last two years that the imagination and abstraction have become the focus of my work. Are increasingly attracted to the non-tangible. This field allows me to feel free to create his most daring and "inner" and more personal, and is also a challenge to myself.
The contemporary German art scene is in this moment is very diverse. Which artists do you respect?
I spent the summer in Leipzig and I have devoted time and attention to the work of Neo Rauch. I appreciate the fact that places in his work elements of the urban landscape of Leipzig. This business trip was for me a moment of inspiration and training. Weischer Mathias is another of my favorite painters, especially his style of past years. As for other influences, I am fascinated by the work of Andreas Golder (German) and Joe Becker (Canadian), and, I'm rediscovering Salvador Dali.
Paint often deserted places.
In some part it was my clear intention to eliminate humans from the opera, just to direct the viewer's attention to the location. In the works depicting the bus stops, is the observer himself becomes the protagonist of painting, as if he is there waiting for the bus. I really like to see a group of people watch one of these paintings have come very close to each other, to watch those 17x20. These works are comparable to my caricature (which shows the details), because they emphasize the unique atmosphere of each stop. I stress that I was the first to document, through my work, bus stops, even before Google Street View. I have about forty oils devoted to this theme. Each station is connected to the other stops, and therefore every owner of a painting of this series, the other owners. For me, it is a fundamental aspect of this work.
The project FaceWoods: How did you come up with the idea?
Long ago, I had painted a portrait on a round wooden table;and after having been exposed, I had put in an envelope, not to lose it. Despite this, I could never find it, and this gave me no peace. For the next show, so I created seventy paintings in round format, similar to what I could not find. Since that time I was also thinking about friendship in the days of Facebook, and what makes it different from the real one, I decided to call this series FaceWood. The intent was to convey the idea of Facebook from digital to the real world.
