Skaletsky works with both digital and analogue collage techniques mixing them with painting. His unique fusion of photography and painting achieves an effect which goes beyond a ”pure” traditional technique.
On Friday 10th January please join at The Ballery for the opening of an exhibition of new works.
The Ballery is a gallery and independent art space in the neighborhood of Schöneberg in Berlin. Since opening in 2014, it has aimed to present a balanced cross section of society in a dynamic format that picks up a variety of artistic approaches. The Ballery places a strong focus on presenting perspectives that support diversity and equality within the community.
Tel-Aviv, Moscow and Berlin -based artist. In his works Igor Skaletsky freely manipulates the recognizable images of the history of art and high culture, and ironically unites them in the stylistics of fashion magazines. His works send us back to patterns of our perception and at the same time destroy them. Our visual habits, this secret passage to the unconscious, become juggling toys in his hands. The spectator lives through his images as if through the shock of unexpected discovery of a familiar story.
