The Linocuts and Multimedia Works of Karol Pomykała

by Andy SmithPosted on

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.”
