Andrzej Zielinski’s vivid paintings depict everyday electronic devices such as mobile phones, laptops, ATM machines and paper shredders. Painted with thick gestural paint in bright confectionary colours, these works comment on the ever expanding reverence contemporary society has for technology and information. They also reference the art historical notion of the readymade and the history of abstract painting.

Depicted at a 1:1 ratio as compared to the actual objects, these paintings display a distortion between actual and perceived space. They also highlight our dependence on everyday machines with their constantly updating functions and capabilities. Zielinski seeks to update painting by using 21st century acrylics, gels and mediums and his unique painting style means each scrape of the palatte knife simultaneously suggests description, abstraction and bas-relief.

Having just completed a visiting artist residency at ANU, Canberra, this young artist has received much critical attention in the USA. In 2009 New York art critic Jerry Saltz named Zielinski as one of 33 notable American artists to have emerged after 1999.
