Marek Zyga - Video


As a sculptor he is interested in the human form, especially the body and its gestures. He is fascinated by people, their beaviour and reactions. His sculptures are like processed images from reality, to some extent they are stories. When an idea comes to mind and eventually takes shape, he sculpts in clay and then it is formed into gypsum.

As a self-taught artist, he is sensitive to proper technique. Before starting a new work, he thinks how he should go about doing it. He does not make sketches but immediately makes a model in clay. His works are decorated with angobas, pigments and are glazed. His sculptures relate to classic sculptural forms. One can see busts, torsos, heads carrying symbolic, erotic, exposing meaning-sometimes with a certain undertone of surrealism. His ally is experience and observation. He is inspired by man, actually by the relations between people, their differences and their similarities.
