The geometric abstraction of Dominik Sokolowski is suggestive of the energetic vibrancy and visual density of a thriving urban landscape. The thickly applied paint which forms the asymmetrical shapes abutting one another is overlaid with an intense grid-work of incised horizontal and vertical lines; this compacted imagery is suggestive of an aerial view of a bustling metropolis.

Dominik Sokolowski exhibits within the United States solely through the Bill Lowe Gallery. Sokolowski's work has been displayed throughout Canada and France since 2001, and has been favorably reviewed in several French artistic publications. His work is included in the collections of Le Cirque du Soleil, Ernst & Young, and Diffusart International.
