“Art arises not alone—it’s pushed to the surface by reality’s circumstances, the artist’s will, and an affinity with the future—something that is still becoming, not yet complete,” expresses Roman Antopolsky. Striking abstract renderings diverging with essential minimalist concepts encompass most of his extensive work. He paints to inquire into that very immaterial space from which images, words, and thoughts are drawn. A bold articulation of shapes, structures, knowledge, and power exerting dominance as a form of artistic expression. Roman works at his home studio with art inseparable from his living spaces. He gains fresh perspectives from taking his mind off things through playing the house piano and translating poetry. This process makes sure his subject matter enters at the proper contrast and overall balance to achieve dynamic senses of rhythmic movement. He displays these forms in a constant state of change from which their materiality allows a limitless abundance of possibilities. Roman’s work has been highly lauded in collectives in Argentina, Brazil, Uruguay, and the United States. His simple joys include walking, biking, learning language, and making art and sound projects with his children.
