About the work
Tokarski's works elude simple interpretation. Here, for viewers from our everyday lives, familiar or seemingly familiar image fragments overlap fragments of images such as advertising motifs, logos, signs, or symbols overlap with conspicuously placed text elements that trigger involuntary associations in the viewer. By mixing fragments of different content, the combination of which often has a bitingly sarcastic undertone, the artist nevertheless manages to attract the attention of viewers overstimulated by the overcrowded media world and to set off in search of the meaning of the image, which must inevitably always be multi-layered. Tokarski is a master of irony and absurdity, translating them into painting and strikingly denouncing grievances in society, politics, and the environment. His works resemble leaflets put up on the wall, whose message is hard to resist.
