This darkly provocative work is one of Sroka’s earliest work when he was a student at the Academy of Fine Arts in Kraków, Poland.
Sroka used four separate zinc plates which were then printed together. “In that time, I liked to etch plates with strong acid. It gave me an expressionistic power.”
Trois pour M. (“three for M.”) reflects Sroka’s preoccupation with darker societal themes such as government, human rights, and the politics of sex. This particular work depicts three women each confined to individual spaces, isolated yet seemingly sharing the same experience.
This épreuve d’artistes is rare since most such editions traditionally remain with the artist.
Jacek Sroka was born in Kraków in 1957.
He has shown his work at 120 solo exhibitions as well as at several hundred group exhibitions in Poland and abroad. Retrospective exhibitions of his work have been mounted at the Musée des Beaux Arts, Chambéry, the Musée d’Ussel, and the National Museum in Kraków, among many, many others.
Sroka’s works can be found in the private collections of the National Museum in Kraków, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the Graphische Sammlung Albertina in Vienna, the National Gallery of Art in Washington, and the Bibliothèque Nationale de France.
