SLOWING

DOWN THE

PRESENT

SLOWING

DOWN THE

PRESENT

Pascal Smelik creates works of art that 

provoke a feeling of delay. 

An inner reaction to the fast-paced

we live in.

 

Reflecting his desired state of mind

of slowing down the present,

a way he would love to live.

 

By carefully experimenting with natural

processes and forms he creates works of

art that are litterally ‘in the moment’.


The studio of Pascal Smelik mainly

works with small series, limited editions

or context specific commisions.
