Viola Tycz

ARTIST REPRESENTED BY STALOWA

“(…) many artists present their works online as well and sell them through virtual galleries. The point is that in Viola Tycz’s work those two worlds intertwine and we are often confused. Not in a sense of illusion or any other kind of cheap trick. We are forced to make intellectual effort, to reflect and this is what causes our confusion. “ - Paweł Jarodzki
