About Bartek Materka
Concentrating on the mechanics of visual perception, Bartek Materka's paintings present dysmorphic scenes of everyday life that range from abstract to figurative. He favors images of his family and friends to explore how our emotions and subjective neurological systems distort the way we see the world. Materka also uses photographic source material to construct his paintings, such as images produced by microscopes, television screens, or ASCII computer code.
Polish, b. 1973, Gdansk, Poland, based in Krakow, Poland
