ROLAND RAFAEL REPCZUK

Roland Rafael's portfolio
Exhibitions/Events I have been kissed as a free artist by seven muses,
which is the fact why it is hard for me to define a main focus in my work.
I enjoy the luxury of being able to spend my whole life to the creative forces.
For me it is not clear why I have deserved this privilege.

Vita – min - B

A decisive influence on my development of becoming an artist, had especially my
narrow connection to the German art metropolises Kassel, the town of my birth,
Cologne and Dusseldorf, as well as the musical adjustment in my family.
My financial independence allows me free orientation,
free work and traveling , presents, whose value is inestimable.

Why make art? My eye
.
The facial sense gives me the perception of a visible world
allows me examination and knowledge and is at the same time
the entrance to psyche - soul -

My soul is an artist and her tools are
my eyes - my imagination - my hands - and the resonance with the universe.
What has formed me to the creator of illusions?

Why and how could I develop to an artist?
There aren't many events kept in my mind.
Maybe I have to owe it to the providence or the coincidence,
that I saw the world differently after an ocular operation and getting the wrong glasses.
By this, i was able to discoverthe world from a new prospect.
Houses, persons, cars - everything was upside down-
Often I was admonished to look through these glasses-
my clamour was so long suppressed till my objections were silenced
and I had to learn living with this interference-

The world as those is reversible and nothing is like it seems.

Very early I have felt mysrelf drawn to art and developed my own perspective
These aspects in combination with each other
also caused a lot of problems.
At the beginning of the second year at primary school
I started to fake the signatures of my parents,
in order to avoid (amoung the rest) the discomfort of an attemp to deception.



I have never been able to honor the jugglery of human authority.
On the contrary.
It provokes me to contradiction,
and I cannot ignore the fact that
this has developed a very unconventional way for me.
Conflicts with the authorities of this society
have shaped unambiguously my present life.
Every controversy increased my disobedience
and loud protest stirred the conflict in me.
