Guy Hepner and The TAX Collection are pleased to present an exclusive release with Australian artist Sidney Teodoruk. The online release will feature fifteen unique hand embellished works on paper and two limited edition prints. The prints will be available world wide online on the Guy Hepner Shop from Thursday February 27th at 2pm EST.
Sidney Teodoruk (formally known as Brad Teodoruk) is an artist of contrasts. Using every visual device at his disposal, he weaves strange narratives drenched in dichotomous imagery and text, then obscures large areas in swathes of block-colour, inviting the viewer to fill in the blanks. Nostalgic, childhood objects are randomly scattered throughout fractured, neo-expressionist scapes, simultaneously evoking feelings of playfulness and unease.
For Teodoruk, opposing forces are clearly a point of confusion, contention and humour. Heavy, dense concepts such as religion or the prison system are contrasted with subjects of either physical or metaphorical lightness – a beach ball, a bird, the sky.
Teodoruk uses the language of juxtaposition to explore the way he perceives both the world and himself.
Based in Sydney, Teodoruk studied painting at The Nation Art School has exhibited in Australia and internationally, including solo shows in Seoul and Copenhagen.
