Piotr  Skowron comes to ‘ace as part of the partnership that we have with the Academy of Fine Arts in Lodz. Currently he is working as an assistant at his home university in Agata Stepien Silkscreen Studio.  He specializes in intaglio and serigraphy. However, he isn't confined only to traditional forms of print and often exploits unconventional graphic techniques. Experiments with collography are strongly related to his earlier education - engineering. 

ARTIST STATEMENT

Right now I'm working on a project: "Matrix and prints as graphics object creating space". The project is base on a series of abstract graphic works made from matrixs and graphics printed in silk screen and intaglio. Works will be in relation with the enviroment - by building them from matrixs and graphics I want to creat graphic spatial objects - installation. In this project I want to explore the possibilities of abstract description of reality inherent in a widely understood graphical language, to which: matrixs, prints, graphic installations can be categorized.
