Polish artist Sebastian Laszczyk monochromatic etchings’ recurring theme is setting death in perspective. With a sense of irony and verticality he invites the viewer into this space, undefined and open to an infinite investigation. The sense of depth is given by the black background that amplifies the openness towards another reality.

The surrounding environment plays an important role within the composition since it defines the posture and the dynamism of the main subject. With the sometimes floating or walking figures, Laszczyk takes a satirical view on death. His skeletons are wandering around in imaginary settings. The proportions of these subjects are not real but seem to be gigantic, adapting their presence to the environment.

The composition is perceived as a dynamic consideration of life and death. Laszczyk gives life to his skeleton by representing it in action, from the bottom up, giving the scene a sense of verticality. These figures seem thoughtful, as their lives are endless. Laszczyk’s works pick a more ironic approach as the presence of life cannot be separated from the concept of death.
