Stanislaw Trzebinski’s bronze table appears alive, ancient and weathered all at the same time. Emblazoned with Turing patterns, Extra Terrestrial springs from the artist's fascination with diffusion reactions and the basic chemistry that defines all living matter. Born and raised in Mombasa, Kenya, Trzebinski takes inspiration from the natural wonders of the Rift Valley and the East African coast. Working from his Cape Town-based studio, he creates fantastical works that appear to bear the weathered marks of time as well as signs of new life. His 2019 solo at Southern Guild, In the Absence of Light, was a wide-ranging collection of furniture, lighting and sculpture that evoked the rich and otherworldly forms of life beneath the ocean.
