All sorts of things in this world behave like mirrors.
Jacques Lacan

 

London-based artist, Rad Husak, employs a multi-layered practice of painting, collage, printmaking and illustration. By using a variety of materials and mediums he captures his interests, often inspired by classical antiquity, the history of modern society and popular culture of the 1950s and 1960s, touching upon themes of body depiction recurring throughout history.

Objects and people depicted in Husak's work conveys variations on personal narratives, while his compositions use both traditional and unconventional means: figures often collide and overlap with each other creating new meaning and energy, thus shifting the interpretation of corporal. Double exposure and glitch together with repetition create a bold vision of what is bodily. The scale of works split between monumental and humble encourage personal contemplation. The reflective surface becomes an augmented mirror of the reality. 

Husak's work presents no immediate solutions. By being in a constant state of flux his artistic process encourages ongoing development leaving room for future exploration.
