Radek Husak (Rad) is inherently a process-driven artist. Based in London and with a Masters from the Royal College of Art, his practice is firmly situated in the expanded field of print. Through intensive research and experimentation, Rad has come to hew out his own process - defining the technique of the pigment transfer twinned with carbondrawn elements, on sandblasted aluminium, often utilising the alternative photographic technique of the cyanotype.
In his work, Rad is attempting to bring order into a world that feels chaotic; beauty where there is ugliness. Taking the humble material of aluminium, he transforms it into something which sparkles akin to stardust. Blasting through the outer layers of the metal, he reveals the reflective inner - heightening what was utilitarian and creating a sensation of something which is greater than oneself. Rad is scratching at the divine in order that we are able to transcend ourselves, creating a moment of wonder.
