A Geometric Edge: The Art of Robert Porazinski

Artist Robert Porazinski produces abstract paintings and artworks, often with a geometric edge, but sometimes veering into more experimental, materially-concerned structures. The artist has a background in commercial art and design, disciplines which inform many of his personal artworks.

It’s interesting to see just how much variation Robert is able to coax out of a relatively focused set of visual elements. The artist’s go-to colour palette is one that features primaries in subdued, slightly earthy iterations. In Robert’s recent series Interruptions, distorted, coloured stripes are painted on slightly textured OSB board, lending the abstractions a textured, almost natural look. The paintings themselves are reminiscent of works by Bridget Riley.

While Robert’s works tend to be hard-edged, referencing pure geometry and in some cases minimalism, the artist never loses sight of a human element. The works are approachable and almost warm in their abstraction.
