Paul Hulewicz

based in Switzerland, photographer and mixed-media artist


My recent work is mainly inspired by nature. I am privileged to live surrounded by magnificent scenery and have always regarded nature as an inexhaustible source of ideas. Nature triggers imagination and new ideas of abstract interpretation come to life. Blending abstraction and real as well as technique experimentation lead to unexpected outcomes and discoveries. Some techniques used in my recent series make a link between mysterious imperfections in nature and man-made objects. As an echo to natural forces abstract images refer to unpredictable, short-lived and fleeting. They evoke authenticity, impermanence and a sense of vulnerability and aim to remind that human comprehension has limits.
I define my challenge and goal as searching for new visual directions accessing the subconscious. Surprise and ambiguity, which are so very present in nature are my guidelines.
