...For the first time in Berlin, Warsaw resident artist Ol Skoczylas (oleg-olga) is showing selected photographs in a solo-exhibition. His carefully selected models are portrayed in a state of utter vulnerability, playing with gender, ignoring its traditional roles and stereotypes, but never in an overly extravagant or confident fashion. There is never a clash of elements in his photos, just one or two elements that fit the models in a natural, harmonious way. The emphasis is on the body’s expressive force, which, in the artist’s world, is always gentle and sensitive. The models stand on their own, maintaining a distance from the spectator, almost unwilling to reveal anything about themselves. Inadvertently, they do, which turns us into intruders into the private spheres created between the artist and his muses…
Ol Skoczylas is a self-taught photographer and painter from Warsaw, Poland. He studied philosophy at UKSW university. After obtaining his Master’s degree, Ol started to travel around, initially using photography only as an inspiration for paintings, but little by little he used it to explore the medium and discover his own photographic voice.
