Vincent Tomczyk

By rebuilding physical objects in cardboard or paper, Tomczyk creates an odd interaction for the viewer. Both surprise and awe at the craftsmanship but also an interesting conundrum of expectation and perception where the eyes are fooled by the simulacrum, at odds with what is known or realized. The objects contain a hidden history of their own making, of course, but more importantly they reflect, for the artist, histories and biographies that emotionally link people and experiences. Although these hermetic associations are separated from a direct connection, as our subjective selves always are, these objects display a poignant aura of personality. (MP). vincenttomczyk.com
