The Art of Numbers
Jarek Kubicki is an award winning multimedia artist, painter, website designer, photographer, and art director, having been published in numerous magazines and having installed several gallery exhibitions. He was born in Gdańsk, Poland and now currently lives in Warsaw as a creative director for an advertising agency. He’s worked on numerous corporate ad campaigns, created over a dozen CD covers and book covers, runs his own design studio, Insania Evidens.
In many of his works Kubicki seems to approach the human body as if it were a block of marble to which he proceeds to dismember its parts, distort its form, and leave only the spirit in a frozen state of transmutation.
His work however is not purely deconstructive for the sake of destruction.
Kubicki paints flushes of colors like ecstatic auras, or liberates the would-be monster by highlighting the distraught form with beams of light that illuminate the imprisoning negative space. Kubicki also incorporates the use of veils over many of the female subjects as if to emphasize the idea of mystery beyond the physical realm.
Jarek Kubicki’s paintings are dark, beautiful, soft, hard, cold, colorful, melancholic, and abstract. They demand focus but do not force interpretation. Considering the greater picture, this is just the beginning of Kubicki’s career.
And since he’s technologically progressive, his art will continue adapting through the evolution of technology.
We have much to look forward to.
