Description

Unique Linocut Print

Wilhelm Sasnal (*1972, Tarnów, Poland) studied art in Krakow and has rapidly risen to become one of Poland’s best-known and most successful contemporary artists. He practices social criticism in his paintings and films, whereby he draws upon images from the internet and mass media, which today are primarily the only sources feeding our body of experience. He has thereby developed a style which is extremely striking in its austerity, and which establishes an ambiguous distance towards what it shows by means of blank spaces, hints and blurring.

Wilhelm Sasnal:

“It’s a series of 45 (my age) linocut prints. Each of them differs from the others by the number of teardrops and titled after the year of 1973 (my first birthday and the first teardrop) up to 2017. The motive of the woman / mother comes from the Picasso painting ‘The Absinthe Drinker’ and Andersen’s tale ‘Mother’.”
