Stanislaw Trzebinski's work evokes the mystical, suspended experience of a diver beneath the waves, encountering the still and otherworldly depths teeming with life

For his first solo show with Southern Guild, Stanislaw Trzebinski creates an immersive collection of functional bronze sculpture inspired by his lifelong fascination with the ocean. In the Absence of Light will evoke the mystical, suspended experience of a diver beneath the waves, encountering the still and otherworldly depths teeming with life.

“We know so little about our oceans, yet we are destroying them at such a fast rate. We don’t even know what we’re losing,” says Stanislaw. It is that sense of the unknown, the unexplored parts of the ocean and as-yet undiscovered life forms, that his sculptures beckon to. Light is a recurring theme in the collection and many of the pieces include small LEDs that create the effect of bioluminescence.

In the Absence of Light continues the exploration of Stanislaw’s Extra Terrestrial series from 2018, enigmatic sculptural works that appear ancient and weathered even as they sprout new tendrils of life. Reminiscent of diverse organic forms such as coral, fungi and stalactites, the pieces seem to have grown biologically. Like many of his other works, they are emblazoned with the snaky, winding marks of Turing patterns, which model organic patterning in nature such as stripes and spots.

A percentage of the proceeds from sales of these works will go towards Local Ocean Conservation, a Kenyan not-for-profit organisation that works to protect the country’s marine environment through ocean conservation, education and outreach programmes.
