'Strange things have happened', by Marek Zyga, sculpture

1968 Boleslawiec, Poland

As a sculptor I am interested in human being, especially in his body and gestures. I am fascinated by persons, their beaviour, reactions. My sculptures are like processed images from reality, to some extent they are stories. When an idea comes to my mind and eventually takes shape, I sculpture in clay and then it is formed into gypsum. As a self-taught I am sensitive to proper technique. Before I start a new work, I think how I should make it. I do not make sketches but immediately make a model in clay. My works are decorated with angobas, pigments and are glazed. My sculptures relate to classic sculptural forms. One can see busts, torsos, heads carrying symbolic, erotic, exposing meaning-sometimes with a certain undertone of surrealism. My ally is experience and observation.I am inspired by man, actually by relations between people, differences and similarities.
