Martin Bialas’ work is a quest for something poetic and yet sophisticated in its simplicity. Inspired by numerous journeys across the Sahara desert, where the expanse of space and natural elements provide inspiration for where everything and anything can reveal the truth in its inherent beauty. His conceptual sculptures are cast in bronze, suitable for interior or exterior walls. Light and airy, they somehow defy the weight traditionally associated with bronze sculptures and his placement brings out the contrasts of light and shade, rough texture on smooth, elegant sophistication and primitive simplicity. His works can be found throughout several private European collections and foundations and the featured artwork “Untitled, 2016” and elegant sculpture, “Silence” in the IXA venue are no exception to his unique language.
