Artist Jurek Wybraniec maintains a dynamic multidisciplinary practice from his base in Fremantle, Western Australia. His work examines how aesthetics of popular culture and the everyday may be reinterpreted through a reductive approach, reassessing our use of language, materials and space.
For over three decades Wybraniec has exhibited broadly in solo and group exhibitions, as well as national survey shows such as 2002’s Meridian; Currents in Australian Art at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Sydney and In Abstract: form and essence in recent Western Australian painting at the Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery in Perth in the same year. In 2004 the artist was invited to participate in a survey of contemporary practice at the National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne, and in 2005 featured in an exhibition of new acquisitions at the National Gallery of Australia, Sydney. His more recent projects have included Green and Gold, a collaboration with David Atwood at Fremantle Arts Centre, 2014; an exhibition with the AC4CA at FABRIKculture, Hégenheim in France, 2012 and the AC4CA Print Portfolio exhibition at ParisConcret in 2012.
Over the years Wybraniec has won a number of public artwork commissions, for the most part in collaboration with Stephen Neille. Currently he lectures at the Central Institute of Technology, Perth, and is a founding committee member of the Australian Centre for Concrete Art.
Wybraniec has been the recipient of a number of grants and awards and his work is represented extensively in both public and private collections, such as: the Art Gallery of Western Australia, the Museum of Contemporary Art Sydney, the National Gallery of Australia, Sydney and Daimler Chrysler Collection, Berlin.
