About

Polish artist Agnieszka Pilat paints heroic portraits of aging machines as discourse on contemporary society's growing technological dependence. Living in what Pilat refers to as the “cultish age of technology,” her work pays tribute to industry while simultaneously confronting humanity’s fear approaching automation. Pilat often arranges her machines in a formal composition, echoing aristocratic portraits of the past. Her subjects serve as both witnesses and agents of change; a reference to human progress, while also acknowledging the ultimate decay of such endeavors. Through the formal approach of her painting, Pilat helps decaying products, the physical remnants human achievement, transcend time.

This 48 inch square oil painting on panel showcases machinery in a heroic light. This artwork is a part of Pilat's "#disrupt" series, in which she celebrates technology and industrial innovation. Pilat's expert control of oil paint merges realism and abstraction to highlight mechanized design. This painting is wired, and ready to hang. The sides are exposed wood, which highlights the industrial aesthetic, it does not require framing.

To Pilat, recording the role of machines inevitably immortalizes America’s industrial triumph. Having emigrated from Poland to America, she believes that ‘the greatness of America is the greatness of its industry’. Her unique perspective on the American attitude to technology finds form in her celebration of machines
