This past weekend Patricia Low Contemporary unveiled a solo show of paintings by Gregor Warzecha. The small scale works are primarily oil on canvas with a few pieces completed in acrylic.
Identity is obscured in these hazy portraits. The features have been rendered and ceded to reinvestigation lending a time lapse quality to the work.
Warzecha’s delight in the playful adaptation of reality is notable in “Splinter1” (above). A covered model has been seated in front of a salon style hanging of earlier work. Depictions of the subject and background are handled accurately but content choice returns the focus to painterly concerns.
