Records of Primal Encounters

Janusz Wrobel

The dominant theme in Wrobel’s work is the razor-thin layer of living nature that grows upon the vast expanse of the Great Canadian Shield. For Wrobel, the Shield is a timeless petri dish where he records encounters between the living world and the inert. This is where he explores the ambiguity of scale in this world, focusing on small spaces to find a reflection of the universe.
