In the myriad of Roguski's creations, one artwork that has left an indelible mark on the art community is 'The Eye' from 2022. A layered wooden map, 45cm x 45cm x 4.5cm (18"x18"x2") in dimension, this piece is a stunning example of Roguski's innovative approach to laser-cut woodwork.
'The Eye' is not merely a map—it's an artistic rendition of multiple cities, each layer representing a different city and etched in a distinctive color. Roguski meticulously laser cuts each layer, giving the artwork a depth that pulls the viewer in, making them a part of its narrative.
At the heart of the square wooden canvas is a series of circles, cut out from each layer. These circles converge to form an image reminiscent of an iris, with the intricate city maps serving as reflections dancing on its surface. The artwork is finished with a sleek black finish, the darkness amplifying the mesmerizing interplay of light and shadow within the piece.
"The Eye is a testament to our connection with the places we inhabit. Each city leaves a mark on us, just as we leave a mark on it. It's a symbiotic relationship, an unending dialogue, captured in wood," says Roguski.
The artwork, as Roguski intended, is a reflection of our relationship with the urban landscape. It invites viewers to delve deeper into their understanding of space, place, and identity.
