        DALLAS CONTEMPORARY

        Untitled
        An overview of Piotr Uklański’s “ink” paintings is now on view at Dallas Contemporary. While these
        works are abstract, they evoke numerous themes at the heart of Uklański’s practice. The obsessive and repetitive nature of Uklański’s ink painting technique is rife with historical and allegorical references. The ritualistic aspect of their creation, combined with their intrinsic aesthetic rigor, builds upon key artistic forebears in the veins of minimal and conceptual art.
