Wolfe von Lenkiewicz’s new body of work builds on his previous coalescences of disparate imagery: from contemporary to historic, high art of the Renaissance to icons of popular culture. While appearing on first glance as faithful reproductions, revealed in each case are works densely populated with disparate imagery – destabilising any sense of narrative and questioning notions of authorship.
‘The Raft of Medusa’ continues to stretch these ideas. However, while previously Lenkiewicz has driven contextual imagery together from disparate time periods and geographies, in this exhibition the scope is deliberately narrowed. Flattening history, the result perceived through the lens of the present becomes a historical deconstruction; challenging our notions of past and present, the work moves outside of history.
