The reliefs of Martin Chramosta are made of plaster or wax.
They wear french titles. They are closed, limited, autonomous works.
They are gestural compositions of small and medium format. Drawing and sculpture cross in the rigidity of their moving features, in the volume of their hatching,
in the digging of their strokes. Styles of recent art history resonate in them.
They look a bit like fossils and their motifs are abstract, cubist, mythical, athletic, dystopic, provincial, profane. Et cetera.
Martin Chramosta examines historical forms and archetypes for their contemporary value and their social relevance and creates assemblages that crystallize in various media such as sculpture, drawing or performance.
