Detroit artist Michael Polakowski contemplates uncertainty and impermanence in his latest collection of escapist paintings and limited-edition prints.
"My work focuses on the contrast between outdoor and indoor in order represent things within and without our control. Creating the paintings and drawings for this exhibition acted as a method for me to center myself within our chaotic and confined times, while escaping from the often overwhelming 'new normal.'
"Over the last few months, I drew inspiration from my impromptu home studio, photography from my day-to-day life, and found images from print magazines. I blended these subjects in scenes that simultaneously feel expansive yet confining, exposing the viewer to feelings of momentary calm within a broader context of an uncertain future." – Michael Polakowski
