On Saturday February 8 st from 6.00 pm the Shazar Gallery presents Technicolor, the first Italian solo show by Gabriel Orlowski. The Polish artist has produced exclusively for the Napolitan gallery a photographic project focused on the light ability to transform the subjects portrayed physicality, to change its essence in favor in an ethereal and autonomous consistency.
Born in 1989, the photographer, who lives and works in Warsaw, was recently named as one of the "Young Lynx" by Contemporary Lynx magazine, the list of the most important young Polish artists (2018). Author and collaborator of various magazines and art books, besides Orlowski is interested in music and digital languages. He exhibited in personal and collective exhibitions throughout Europe. In Technicolor Orlowski shows the recent works conceived for the occasion, nine photographs that open windows on isolated, silent and balanced worlds in which the eye investigates a parallel reality made of lines and golden dust that define new perspectives.
The artist engages with the light a kind of serious game, hunting for potential discoveries: “I let a little light filter through, I let the room be flooded with a thin aura of psychedelia, and I wait for it to creep near the threshold, that casts its shadow on the walls or slides on an expanse of water, avoiding any direct contact ... only then I am aware that the light is right there ".
The photographer's research takes the form of clean, clear, precise compositions in which, however, the color changes are always bright, warm, decorative, a peculiar approach that becomes his stylistic code.
Gabriel Orlowski lives and works in Warsaw, holds a Master's in Photography from the Photography Department of the National School of Cinema, TV and Theater in Łódź. He has exhibited his works in solo and group exhibitions across Europe, including Agnes B. Galerie du Jour in Paris (2014), Galeria Leto in Warsaw (2015) and Zigutamve in Vienna (2018), as well as an exhibition during the Warsaw Gallery Weekend 2018 in the Stroboskop Art Space.
