ARTIST: Jarek Puczel - 4me4you

4me4you features - "Face Value".


4me4you visits Pontone Gallery which featured the artist Jarek Puczel- "Face Value".


With a background in film and design, Jarek Puczel, found his vocation in painting. Puczel's subject is the figure, particularly the head. His compositions typically feature a couple, male and female, engaged in an intimate embrace.

A romantic and idealised moment is rendered in a coolly dispassionate style. His technique is graphic and crisp; the colour and tone flat, the draughtsmanship precise.

These images of focused drama, like stills clipped from a continuum.  They are elements of a story, which, although familiar, we are not entirely privy to.

Mysterious in their content, we are invited to fill in an interpretation from the clues.  Are these pictures of tenderness, alienation or something cynically performative?
