Stanislaw Lewkowicz

The Netherlands, Amsterdam Flatland Gallery

Stanislaw Lewkowicz studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Utrecht, The Netherlands. His photographs/lithographs have an intimate feel, while at the same time distancing themselves from the viewer; perhaps even from the artist himself. His process of combining photographic originals with a lithographic technique creates an intriguing blend of photography and lithography, and a blurring of figuration and abstraction. In addition to his photographic work, Lewkowicz has taken on assignments for the public space. His projects include the Arrivals Hall 3 at Schiphol Airport (1995) and the mist sculpture for the Dutch Embassy in Berlin (2004) (in collaboration with architect Rem Koolhaas). His work is included in the permanent collection of the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, and was previously exhibited at the International Print Biennial in Guanlan, China, at Museum Fodor (today's Foam Amsterdam), at Richard Demarco Gallery in Edinburgh, and at many other venues.
