"form follows meaning"

Martin Rybacki is a Polish-born visual artist from Germany.
He likes to work in different styles and mediums.

He is interested in the liminal arts between the profane and the sacred.
Being embedded in and a product of a culture that reflects relativism, he uses both his personal biography and known symbolizm in his search for a place between secular and religious art. For this he focuses on meaning and not on formal recognizability.
