Damien Borowik is a visual artist who investigates the art of making as aesthetics. Using either analog or digital processes, the artist develops his own creative tools and explores their mark-making abilities. Damien Borowik explores the use of technology and the art of making the materiality of process. Damien is known for creating his own proprietary machinery to develop his artwork, leading to a unique and one-of-a-kind piece of art.
In this exhibition, Damien Borowik uses his hand-crafted machines to create both figurative and abstract drawings through the repetition of lines with an emphasis on the space in-between. “Ma (間) is a Japanese word that can be roughly translated as gap, space, pause or space between two structural parts. The spatial concept is experienced progressively through intervals of spatial designation.
[…] Ma is not something that is created by compositional elements; it is the thing that takes place in the imagination of the human who experiences these elements. Therefore, ma can be defined as experiential place understood with emphasis on interval.“ – Wikipedia, Aug 2017
