In the framework of Berlin Art Week, Persons Projects is delighted to present the first solo exhibition of young Polish painter Marcin Jasik, last year’s winner of the international STRABAG Award of Recognition.
His abstract paintings carry their own visual literacy, which he then reduces through his own aesthetic filter to create a feeling of open spatiality. They emit a sense of lightness in how he utilizes an effortless score of gestures and strokes through a series of applied lines and shapes to create a state of ocular tensions. Jasik builds up his reduced narrative by using thin layers of paint and acrylics to choreograph his own synaptic compositions in his visual pursuit of what's essential, the essence behind what we see but feel. His paintings float somewhere between a pale John Zurier and a reduced Antonio Tapies. They represent his pursuit to form a new perspective on how to balance the material world with the spiritual.
