Referencing his early training as an architect, these two works on paper by Wilhelm Sasnal demonstrate the stark, ambiguous imagery which characterize his work, transforming banal objects and scenarios from everyday life into instances of powerful and disconcerting beauty.

Wilhelm Sasnal (Polish, b. 1972) is a Contemporary painter. While studying painting at the Akademia Sztuk, he helped form an artist’s collective called the Ladnie Group, which was ironically named after the Polish word meaning “nice” or “pretty.” His work has been the subject of numerous solo exhibitions, at galleries and museums including the Anton Kern Gallery in New York, Camden Arts Centre in London, Hauser & Wirth Gallery in Zürich, the Senter of Contemporary Art in Warsaw, the Swiss Institute in New York, and Whitechapel Art Gallery in London, among many others. Wilhelm Sasnal currently lives and works in Cracow, Poland.
