Polish photographic collage artist Marcin Owczarek bestows the fear of the end of the world in a dystopian perspective that combines feelings of desire with destruction and devastation. The multi-faceted collages contain layers of symbolic and metaphorical representations that force the audience to delve in and discover. From futuristic, post-war ideas to biblical references Owczarek’s works may remind viewers of the great Hieronymus Bosch. All in all, Owczarek’s works call for a change in society in order to reach the utopia we so desire.
