Marian Kasperczyk, Ornament, 1997
Own technique “back to front” (acrylic on canvas), 41 x 33 cm
From 1988, Kasperczyk developed an original techinque to which he devoted exclusively and which he called “back to front”. It consists of covering the back of the canvas of acrylic paint and then to press it through. The works thus obtained, presented for the first time at Art Cologne in 1991, are situated at the boundary of the bi- and three-dimensionality and the primordial role is played by light, which makes appear or disappear the irregularities of a rough texture. Over the years, Marian Kasperczyk perfected this technique. He exhibits mainly in France and Poland.
