The pictures are charming. They has a kind of New Yorker quality about them. They are fun. Lizzy Stewart

William Hogarth

30 05 2015

William Hogarth ( 10 November 1697 – 26 October 1764) was an English painter, printmaker, pictorial satirist, social critic, and editorial cartoonist who has been credited with pioneering western sequential art.

His work ranged from realistic portraiture to comic strip-like series of pictures called “modern moral subjects”. Knowledge of his work is so pervasive that satirical political illustrations in this style are often referred to as “Hogarthian”

Very funny stuff from a man who saw into the foibles of human nature.

It appears that the post-apocalyptic world has almost become a genre in art. The first thing  you notice about Owczarek’s work is the lack of colour. The greys, tans, and sepia tinges give the pieces a world weary look. As if someone had landed on our planet and discovered some old photographs. The second thing I noticed was the layers. There are many levels to each piece as if skin were being peeled. Torture? The third thing (there is always a third thing) is the lack of humor. The world is bland but the work is not.

Val Telburg

Mr. Telburg used a lot of double exposures and depth of vision to create eerie dreamlike photos. I think he would have loved photoshop and their layers.

Val Telberg (born in Moscow, Russia on February 14, 1910) was a Russian painter. He lived in China during his youth. He studied painting at the Art Student’s League, New York, in 1942, where he was exposed to the surrealism movement and experimental film-making. To support his painting, Telberg traveled from Florida to Massachusetts, printing photographs of nightclub patrons and working at photographic concession stands where people posed with cutouts of celebrities. In 1945, he returned to New York and produced narrative, surrealist photographs using sandwiched, bleached or burned negatives and double exposure within the camera. His later work evolved to large scale, scroll-like multiple images.
