Meet the On-line Artist // Shaun Murawski
Shaun Murawski (@shaunmurawski) is a Photographer & Poet. His work is a meticulous, yet considered observation of presence and absence, a blend of photography and poetry to evoke stillness, melancholy, and shadow. His artistic research is an offering of the fragments of time we’re allowed to keep. an invitation into a saturated yet quiet world, allowing introspection.
Shaun is based in Glasgow, Scotland but much of his work is created in transit or when in unfamiliar surroundings, allowing moments of reflection to become more apparent and amplified. Accompanied by poignant poetry, it tugs at the curtain that shrouds the profound.
His current project “Màthair’’ is a distillation of this practice. An honest conversation about death, and what remains when the past belongs to you, and you alone. Honesty, tenderness alongside the experience of anger are offered and shared as a conversation on the things that we find in common. Asking a simple but profound question:
“If this is the weight of now, then how did we arrive here?”
