I thought I'd share some things about me and my work.
I was born in Warsaw, Poland in 1975. My family was ask
to leave the country so we sought political asylum in Austria
where we lived for a year. My father Jerzy Grochocki is a fine
artist himself he is currently at the head of Polish modern art
he is a systemic painter recently he has appropriated natural
elements into his work. We came to the US in 1984, living in
Portland OR, NYC and now here in Houston TX. I graduated
from the UH in 2003 with a painting/sculpture degree and
art history minor. I am currently involved with music as well
I am a part of three projects: Dead Frail Honesty, Tears of
Nature and Serum Fantis. All three acts a very electronic, dark
My work is the result of over 10 years of work on what I call
the FIre Fountain, it is a universe created by me and my occult
brothers. I have developed a language which appears in my works,
letters, glyphs and ideograms are featured through out. The FF
has its own pantheon which is contantly evolving as new gods, demons
and other supernaturals gain power through our magick workings.
Usually I find myself creating these things in my travels through the
world. I find each place has its own spirits who are attracted to occult
activities and they like to make their presence known through an oracle
system which I created. Vision Quest play a major role in these medium like
states. I find myself logging new words into my dictionary on a daily basis
my goal is to reach at least 10,000 words making the language that much
more precise in its expression. The reason for this creation is simple
if one uses a preexisting system one falls into its traps, like archetypes
I wanted to start a fresh without all the backlog of these cultures. However,
I am using a visual language that certainly has a middle eastern quality
I am doing this because I imagine my own culture to be somehow related
to that ancient world.
That being said enjoy !!!
