Karol Pomykała is known for his stirring, monochromatic linocuts, creating massive and provocative meditations. Recent, the artist has combined this approach with virtual reality, allowing gallery- and museum-goers the opportunity to enter his figure-filled scapes.
“The installation ‘One Direction’ consists of a classic linocut print and contemporary technology represented by the virtual reality. It is a contradiction between the actual and the virtual, transposition of two-dimensional analogue print into three-dimensional computer generated world. The installation consists of two elements. The first one is graphics, large format linocut in size 140 x 400 cm. The second one is VR set with a stereoscopic animation. The picture you see in VR is an extension of large format linocut, exposed on the wall.”
