Notes

"I believe I can be better than the machine."1 - Andrzej Urbanski

 

Andrzej Urbanski's immaculate, hard-edged abstract painting, characterised by shards of bold colour "appears to be the result of an automated process – the precision of its execution engenders this notion that it is generated by a detached, robotic or digital tool. His interest in generating this illusion is rooted in his fascination with digitally produced art, the digital tools he uses in plotting his intricate compositions, the relationship between lived experience and virtual reality and the valorisation of handmade products in the post-industrial era."2
