Product Description

Texts by Peter Doroshenko, Alessandro Rabottini

Published in conjunction with Uklański’s show at Dallas Contemporary, this monograph provides an in-depth critical examination of the artist’s ongoing series of abstract “blood” and “ink drop” paintings—an evocative meditation on the passage of time and the inevitabile specter of death. In the words of Peter Doroshenko, “Uklański has created a provocative and wide-ranging body of work that defies categorization. He engages with nearly all forms of visual media, including installation, large-scale paper reliefs, tie-dyed paintings, textile-based immersive sculptures, resin-based sculptures and paintings, photography, performance, and a feature-length film titled Summer Love.” This catalogue features a specific body of paintings that conceptually overlap with many of his interests and cultural references. “While these works are abstract, they evoke numerous themes at the heart of Uklański’s practice. They combine references to the legacy of postwar painting with a more pop sensibility derived from the blood-soaked violence of cinema history. While these works offer numerous historical and allegorical references, they could easily be unified under the title Bloodworks.”
