J.Rog-Ociepka, Artefakt II, 120x120cm,ol.pł,2016

The title of my painting is “Artefact II”. The jacket in the painting belonged to a prominent art professor from Kraków, who then gave it to my father, also an artist. After years of being forgotten it was found in our studio and reworn by me.The idea is that we get used to the aesthetics of destruction regarding artefacts. I ask a question whether physical artefacts have souls tinged with their owners' story. Perhaps, if the objects are devoid of their identity, left by
their owners, they become seperate beings waiting for a new life.
