The Imperial Heir is part of my Elementum series of 2021. These works exist as an expression of a longing for an alternative reality, for a place of refuge from the noise and clamour of this world. This piece is set in a place not on earth, it is a heroic tableau. The two foreground shapes can be read as colossal in relation to the skyscape behind them. It is Techspressionist in its mannered portrayal of a yearning for someplace beyond our world.
Renata Janiszewska paints on an electronic canvas. Her work uses both digital and analog elements to articulate themes of chance, intoxication, shamanism, bio-degradation, and feminism. Her vocabulary of metamorphizing forms, textures, colours and paradoxical spaces suggests how the organic human, art history, and the machine realm of technology combine to create a new form. In her moving image works she marries disparate elements both to each other and to an original musical score of her own making.
Janiszewska lives in Lion’s Head, Canada.
