In the quiet, melancholic paintings of Roman Lipski, natural spaces are altered by the introduction of industrial and architectural forms. A factory sits by an idyllic lake, a socialist structure sits within a picturesque forest. The effect is off-putting. Whereas 19th century landscape painting leaves the viewer with a sense of awe and wonderment, Lipski's new paintings leave you feeling weirdly confused and alone, not unlike reading Kafka. The dark, apocalyptic mood is intensified by otherworldly coloring and lighting, which, taken together, demands that the viewer consider his or her relationship with nature.
