Mateusz Dąbrowski creates spatial objects and installations, he is a graphic artist, painter and graphic designer .
He concentrate around the issues of unnoticed or invisible reality, illogical reality, and the non-objectivity of environments, realising abstract forms based on contemporary understandings and interpretations of humanism, of man being only a small part of a complex organism like the world.
Dabrowski uses his experience in creating printmaking matrices to experiment with different materials such as: metal, wood, paper or plastics. The materials he uses to realise his works are always not incidental. Create forms whose ideas go beyond their materiality, and often the interactive nature of the artworks is crucial in co-creating meaning and sens. Dabrowski is interested in evolutionism, processuality, the theory of continuous movement, the lack of constancy, omnipresent determined temporal variation. His some sculptures are provoke to simultaneous motion with minimalist repetition, paraphrasing the work of a living organism. He moves his objects mechanically or by means of electromagnetic waves, infrasound or air movements.
