andrzej pluta Artist Bio:
BIOGRAPHY ANDRZEJ PLUTA Andrzej Pluta was born in Poland in and lives in Canada. His unique photographic works are in many private and public collections worldwide including Prince Al Waleed Bin Talal Abdulaziz of Saudi Arabia and actress Susan Sarandon . He is considered by many to be a highly collected flower photographer. His work is created by using a Sinar 8 x 10 inch camera. For some compositions, Carl Zeiss Mirotar lens (one of the world's rarest) is used on the Sinar 8 x 10, making it the only camera construction of its kind. Using an unconventional and complex lighting technique, the full frame image is exposed on 8 x 10 Fujichrome film. There is no darkroom or computer work and no retouching of the original color transparency. He developed his own unique style through experimentation. Each series of work produced brings about imaginative abstractions, varied color palettes and unusual camera techniques. Pluta has had nearly 20 solo exhibitions at the Steuben Gallery in New York since 1990 and has been commissioned by the gallery to photograph their limited edition glass several times.

ANDRZEJ's COMPOSITIONS TELL US ABOUT A WORLD OF FORCES INTERACTING WITH EACH OTHER. THOSE FORCES ARE SHAPES,AND THOSE SHAPES ARE LIVING SHAPES. THESE LIVING ENTITIES SEARCH FOR EACH OTHER,THEY WONT TO COMMUNICATE WITH EACH OTHER.THEY ARE MADE OF VERY SENSIBLE MATTER. CRYSTAL, FEATHERS, MEMBRANES FROM INSECT WINGS, FLOWERS FIBER. ANDRZEJ BELONGS TO THE KIND OF ARTIST THAT FALL INTO THE MANNERIST TREND. ANDRZEJ DOES ART PER ART. HE PLAYS WITH MATTER, THE PLANE, LIGHT, DISTANCE, COLOR AND COMES OUT WITH A COSMOS THAT IS RULED BY THE LAWS OF LOVE. THESE LAWS MOVE THE SUN AND ALL THE OTHER STARS, AS DANTE EXPRESSED IN HIS DIVINE COMEDY ANDRZEJ HAS KINSHIP WITH ARCIMBOLDO, MIRO AND THE LIKE MANNERISTS. HIS APPROACH IS SOMEHOW LEONARDESCUE. HE THINKS OF ALL THE KINGDOMS, ANIMAL, VEGETAL AND MINERAL AS PARTS OF THE SAME THING. FOR ANDRZEJ MAN IS THE SYNTHESIS OF THEM ALL AND THROUGH WHOM ALL MANIFEST. ANDRZEJ SURPRISES,MAKES PUNS,TRANSFORMS. ARCIMBOLDO USES FRUITS,VEGETABLES,FISH FOR THE EVOCATION OF SEASONS AND ELEMENTS. ANDRZEJ USES FRAGILE TRANSPARENT CRYSTALS, INSECT PAWS AND EAGER FLOWERS TO SHOW US A PASSIONATE WORLD,FULL OF TRUTH AND BEAUTY. JOAN MIRO COMPOSES FREE FORMS IN AN UNDEFINED SPACE,THE UNIVERSE. ANDRZEJ PLUTA WITH THE SAME FREEDOM AND PLAYFULNESS REACHES THE BOUNDLESS DIMENSION WHERE EVERYTHING IS POSSIBLE. MR. JOSEPH BERTRAND.
