Jözef Sumichrast creates work that exists both representationally and abstractly, which is a representation of the mystery he likes to incorporate into his works. His work encourages movement and exploration of space, light, and viewer participation. He works with sheet metal and cardboard.
I found this artist interesting because of the not-quite-normal stylistic approaches and simply because some of his art just looks cool. His art is also painfully personal: following a traumatic event in his life, he started incorporating the color red into his works, representative of his legs being surgically reattached.
