Rafal Zawistowski’s work plays on the viewer’s recognition of certain well-worn subjects in western painting in order to re-energise the act of looking. Head-like forms in fat clumps of encaustic (pigment mixed with hot wax, to create a thick and nubbled surface) are highlighted with sprayed haloes or aureoles and titled after significant figures from Catholic iconography: Jesus, Mary and Judas, but also Benedict XV and John Paul II.
