Marek Zyga is born in 1968. As a sculptor he isinterested in human being, especially in body and gestures. He is fascinated by persons, their beaviour and reactions.
His sculptures are like processed images from reality, to some extent they are stories. When an idea comes to his mind and eventually takes shape, he sculpture in clay and then it is formed into gypsum. As a self-taught he is sensitive to proper technique.
“My allies are experience and observation. I am inspired by man, actually by relations between people, differences and similarities.”
Before he start a new work, he think about it verry well how he will make it. He don’t make any sketches but turns immediately a model into clay. His works are decorated with angobas, pigments and are glazed. The sculptures of Marek relate to classic sculptural forms. One can see busts, torsos, heads carrying symbolic, erotic, exposing meaning-sometimes with a certain undertone of surrealism. His ally is experience and observation.
