Agata Rek

Through the lens of Anouk Hart and Agata Rek’s Collage Art Work
A collaborative art project that emerges from the vibrant alliance between two artists: Agata Rek, a Polish-American interdisciplinary artist based in Portland and Anouk Hart, a photographer based in Amsterdam. United by their shared passion for figurative imagery that offers vulnerability and poetic insight, meticulous attention to detail, and conceptual thinking expressed through clean forms, they draw inspiration from a mutual appreciation for shapes, textures, contrasts, and black and white imagery. By combining their individual technical skills and artistic approaches, their collaboration elevates their work to new heights.

In art, what captivates Agata Rek is an unexpected clash, blended with architectural precision and cohesiveness, and that’s precisely what she aimed to achieve. Her goal was to craft narratives that harmonize beautifully with Anouk’s original photographs. Rather than competing, they should prompt you to pause for a moment and perhaps immerse yourself in a space between dream and reality.

While creating these conceptual images, She found inspiration in Cello Suite No. 1 in G Major, Prélude by Johann Sebastian Bach. Strangely, every time 
she revisit these images, she can sense the elegant, deep, and timeless tones of the bass instrument playing—an intriguing and contemplative place I like to be.

‘The Balancing Act’ embodies the flow of life’s rhythm, where light and darkness, joy and sorrow intertwine as we navigate the intricate dance of emotions and experiences. Ultimately, it serves as a reminder that life’s journey is not about attaining a static state of balance but rather embracing the dynamic nature of existence. It encourages us to embrace the tensions and contradictions that define our humanity, and through this dance of opposing forces, find profound meaning, growth, and the true essence of our being.
