ELISABETH SMOLARZ

APARTMENT, drawing on photographic paper, 2005

 

"A series of twelve black-and-white drawings called Apartment by Elizabeth Smolarz represents everyday objects. Their images are digitally re-mastered and then “scratched in an analogue way” on paper, which made them more aesthetic and less real. Ordinary things, when made the principal subject of the work, seem to acquire an element of the sublime. What is also important apart from the intriguing visual properties of the objects shown is the multi-stage process of making the drawings."
