This project deals with the concept of cityscapes, particularly the process of subdividing and developing land to increase urban density. Exploring various cities like Melbourne, Japan, and London, the artist, Cat Poljski, attempts to record and observe the changes these cities undergo. Her art emphasizes the increased condensing of space in our cities, leading to an environment where buildings tower over and overshadow pockets of open space. This approach has resulted in the creation of image prints that symbolize the congestion and density of urban environments.
Poljski's process involves stripping down buildings to their basic geometric patterns and using these as the framework for her images. The perspective can vary, but all are deconstructed into their skeletal forms. The use of line, shape, pattern, and color are pivotal to creating depth and spatial organization within her compositions. These elements, coupled with geometric principles and perspective rules, contribute to the overall feel of each piece. The intention is to make viewers interact with her work, emphasizing the importance of perspective in understanding urban spaces.
