Maksymilian Novak-Zemplinski – AGITABILIS – The Irreverence of Floating
What is the artist’s eye meant to encompass within its gaze?
Maksymilian Novak-Zemplinski’s eye encompasses the past and the future, the mysteries of civilizations past and upcoming, in a realm of fantasy and awe.
The force of insight blares out of solid frames. It blows into the sails of flying objects of the past and future, and in this blowing it alerts the gazer of an emergent mystery.
The revered motion in Zemplinski’s universe is flying, floating in a wind of unpredictability,
as well as resting, resting on doubt, resting against reason, logic or physical precepts, resting on the edge of faith.
The spaciousness of vision allows the eye to relax. The paradox occurs when the eye brushes past encrypted symbols
and equilibrium challenges.
In this universe, man’s presence is not denied. Ghostlike figures accompany huge flying objects, together with stray beasts or stone-carved faces.
In a painting man’s presence is elevated to myth – undeniably a self-portrait.
The journey is ongoing, and this is maybe the most important:
being in motion, floating, flying, escaping into wonder and mystery.
Follow the eye of the mind
and step into a parallel, magical side of life!
Be sure to enjoy the ride, apart from solving its riddles!
