Connected: Relationships with Machines

Andrzej Zieliński

The machines we use on a daily basis - computers, cell phones, ATM machines, printers - serve as the subject matter of Andrzej Zielinski’s paintings and sculptures. Sourced from a fascination with technology and with references to the art historical notion of the ready-made and history of abstract painting, Zielinski conveys a message that we, as consumers of these ubiquitous objects, are simultaneously experiencing the threatening shadow of technological advancement as well as a shared sense of humanity. Andrzej Zielinski was born in 1976 in Kansas City, Missouri. He received his BFA in painting from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. In 2004 he earned an MFA in painting from Yale University. He currently splits his time between Berlin, Germany and Lawrence, Kansas.
