Art Golacki is a multidisciplinary artist working with traditional mediums as well as installations, photography and digital processing.

In each of Golacki’s enigmatic still-life images, a number of man-made, as well as organic objects, are covered in monochromatic paint and arranged to mimic the classical memento mori. This process renders many objects unidentifiable and thus visually equal; creating a primal, intuitive scene devoid of arbitrary learned judgments or categorical labels. Golacki aspires to evoke a kind of reflective state of mind in the viewer while at the same time, creating an homage to the artistry of Old and also Contemporary Masters.
