The art practice of Michał Ratajczak is not about proving drawing skills (in which he is fluent) but rather a search for his own visual language. By exploring possibilities of mixed media techniques, he looks for something that he wants to be identified with. In general, he compares his process to ‘mindfulness’. In other words, he is conscious about what he does on paper/canvas (or beyond) and looks for the final form with every gesture, even if it’s just one touch.
‘Half now half later’ is a work on canvas about creative blocks as a result of financial circumstances.
