Stalowa Gallery, Warsaw
”Transition states” is the title of an exhibition that took place in Stalowa Gallery in Warsaw. The exhibition consists of abstract and realistic paintings. The color and shadow, closed and open forms, collides with each other, crossing new borders. Transient states, by definition temporary, are a permanent state of painterly inquiries.
The title of the exhibition can be contemplated in several dimensions. On the fundamental level, it refers to the subjects that my works focused on: a man, illusory nature of events and powerful, contrasting light. On a deeper level, it refers to the process of forming my painting code.
Today, I may say that my painting does not start anymore. I would describe it as a condition of a fluctuating creative tension. It simply exists, it accompanies me more or less intensively and keeps functioning somewhere in the background. I am experiencing the nonobviousness of the surrounding events, occurrences, sometimes situations and I am inspired by them. In a sense, it means breathing the everyday life from which I draw visual stimuli.
I review color according to temperature, dynamics of interaction, emotions. By juxtaposing warm colors with the cold ones I try to present the effect of color shining.
