We would like to invite you to the exhibition of noteworthy artists: the Polish art group Renbar Mosaics represented by its co-founder Renata Karska. Renbar Mosaics creates in stone, glass and precious gold: three –dimensional mosaic works.
The team members of Renbar Mosaics are qualified professionals in the field of art and art conservation (graduated in Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow and the Department of Mosaics in Academia di Bella Arti in Ravenna Italy).
Their works are both aesthetical refined and exquisite. Their mosaics are prepared from wide range of materials- the most valuable natural stone, marble, granite, travertine, sandstone, through less valuable colourful stained glass and transformed materials( metal, ceramic tiles, aglomarble) as well. They are self designed and handmade. Their work open a creative dialogue between the artist and the viewer by interplay of light and texture, the discovery of the unknown potential of natural materials and the mastery of technique.
Every single tesserae (an individual mosaic tile, usually formed in the shape of a cube, used in creating mosaic) as the human being has its own place and its own role. The presented artworks show the importance of the single element but MULIPLICITY is based on the intuitively gathered sounds to the voice of UNITY.
Each anonymous portrait at this exhibition suggests the way the viewer should see it : the emotion of unknown. We meet unfamiliar persons and we try to compose their faces into our imaginated memory persistently being confronted with our own limitations. The internal diversity is a particular reflection of the heterogenity of our community.Pieces of marble have been gathered to the unique composition creating our impression of seeing glances of meditation, sadness or nostalgia feeding the individual need of emotions .
The RENBAR mosaics anonymous portraits show the paradox of empathy. Are these emotions real in the unreal art environment? Can we feel the emotion of stone? Or maybe we just desperately look for the KNOWN component in everything? And What about the real person, are we able to be the society without the social fear of unknown?
A Man within his identity remains the autonomous unit, embedded in the idea of anonymity seemingly losing his connection to concreteness. The works presented at the exhibition invite to reflection on the diversity of human beings taken out of the crowd they received their emotional personality.
