she did whatever she wanted with his things and his paintings
A visit to the BALTIC during the weekend, to see Marcin Maciejowski's exhibition.
It's a kind of mixture of new painting derived from other works such as photos, magazine items, posters. I've seen a couple of his party scene pictures before. They are really quite striking.
There's other sets which take a look at fashion, celebrity, politics - some don't include the faces, representing a substitutability of form in some situations - like his series of faceless red carpet people.
It seems appropriate to view these pictures, reflective of half remembered mental snapshots, during the weekend when the gallery also allowed photography.
So below, my own (found) creation from the same gallery.
Masking Tape, Plaster board, emulsion.
