Papilarnie - Janusz Jurek

At work I do much 3d design which is very difficult but interesting, consuming at  the same time. I used to spend my whole free time learning new techniques, to make things look more and more real. When I got my aim, it came to me that I could do something completely opposite, I can use my 3d skills for simple, pure art purposes. I came back to drawing, but I had  that crazy idea on my mind to create the way of connecting drawing and sculpting. When you draw the only thing you need is a sheet of paper and good pencil. But what if paper was not enough…. What if the pencil left traces in the air. So I created my virtual environment and enter the line in that 3 dimension space. The technique is sophisticated, that is why I wanted the subject to be simple. Human body has always been the most popular subject in drawing, so my choice was quite obvious. Generative art is about motion, human body is about motion, even motionless it has the complicated nervous system and the blood vessels, which work all the time like wires, but as far as human body is concerned its structure is fragile and strong at the same time
