BIO: Poet, painter and photographer Andres Orlowski was raised in Mexico City. He first developed as a painter and studied Classical Methods of Representation under the counsel of Master Sculptor and Painter Gene Diakonov. He went on to study Academic Drawing at the Florence Academy of Art in Firenze, Italy. Andres has displayed his art work in different venues in th U.S. including the Art Student Showcase in NY, The Toledo Museum of Art in Toledo, Ohio, Gainsburg Gallery in Las Vegas, and in several venues in New Mexico. He has participated in group shows at the Yu-Shin Museum of Art in Habrin, China, in Seoul, Korea at the Cha-um gallery in Muju, S.Korea and at the Nudo Gallery in San Miguel Allende, Mexico. Andres became interested in the expressive qualities of photography in 2008 and brings his sensitivity as an artist and poet to this medium. He recently has begun exhibiting his photography in New Mexico. He describes his work as Pictorialist and Conceptual. “Photography,” he proposes “projects a gaze through a window of time, metaphor and suspended belief.” He concludes “It is at once theatretical and objective.” Drawing his inspiration from early photographers such as Kertesz and Steinech and contemporaries like Misha Gordin, Andres also makes references to his experiences with Old Masters, Surrealism, poetry and most importantly his own life. Throughout his oeuvre, univeral themes appear to converge in a personal theater of images that evoke mystery and introspection.
Dream of Life and Death (c) Andres Orlowski from the series ‘Within and Without’ Limited Series Print. Below from the same series: 1- Noone Escapes 2- The War 3- The Found Mask
p9 The series ‘Within and Without’ is divided into two sections. The artist invites us to view it in a broader context. The man and woman are vehicles to deeper, implied forces in harmony and in strife with one another.
5) Trophy 6) Bernini’s Creatures 7) The Tear 8) El Ritual 9) Embryon 10) La Morte de L’Artiste
The second part of the series ‘Within and Without’ brings into play the silent relationship of man and woman with nature. For Andres the covering of the head has a variety of meanings depending on the photograph or painting. At times, such as in ‘Amantes’ it can imply union between lovers. In other photos it can signify a bond with the force of nature as in ‘Árbol’. 11) El Árbol
13) Cloud Cry
14) The Knot of Life
16)Ode to Water 17) Winter Yucca 18)Young Traveler For Andres a response and melting with the outer world is vital in art. It nourishes a being’s solitude. In March the snows began to melt in Gateway, CO, and the rain and fog crowded the canyon tops. From their heights electrifying waterfalls were born. They brought nourishment, life, vitality as well as destruction. ‘Ode to Water’ brings together two apparently disjointed phenomena: sleep energy represented by the woman and awakening as perceived by the waterfall. For Andres dunes can represent a mask, but beneath their bareness life’s theater can thrive.
‘Temblor’ belongs to the series of the secret life of objectsThe Silence of Matter. It is a view of a transit of light over objects, figurines, skulls and interiors. It is everyday life seen in solitude. 19)Temblor From Templo Natural: 20) Desert Arrow Aurora 22) Defiance
‘Templo Natural’ is a series in which humanity is lost in the symbol- a warrior of the unseen, a protector, a ghost and awakener.

â€œSometimes Spring arrives as a premonition at the very end of Winter. Life appears old and young at once- an omen of things to come.â€?A.O. 44) Omen of Spring 45) Green Moth 46) Dive in 47) The Red Flag 48) Secret Passage
