Paul Bulika at This Art Fair
My work represents my reflections on how people relate to each other, their environment, our time and ourselves. In these relationships, I see parallels with forces and processes in the natural sciences and in social psychology, the essence of which I want to expose.
Using various materials and techniques, I investigate how forces interact. For example in the area of tension where a current is confronted with obstruction or manipulation. Where connections are involuntarily dependent on each other. Where veiling and unveiling are interchangeable concepts. Where the lower layer wishes to get through the upper layer. Where built-up forces approach a critical limit.
