ARTIST STATEMENT


 

Od kilku lat w procesie malowania stosuję głównie dwie metody: zamalowywanie i wymazywanie. W moim przypadku zamalowywanie i wymazywanie niesie ze sobą pewien rodzaj destrukcyjnej siły, agresji i wandalizmu. Z drugiej strony cały czas wierzę w możliwość tworzenia pięknych obrazów i właśnie to jest siłą napędową mojego malarstwa. Fascynuje mnie połączenie dwóch pozornie przeciwstawnych pojęć: niszczenia i tworzenia, destrukcji i budowania obrazów opartych na własnym rozumieniu piękna, gdzie organiczne formy przenikają się z elementami zaczerpniętymi z cyfrowej rzeczywistości.

For a number of years I have been using predominantly two methods in the painting process: overpainting and erasing. In my case, overpainting and erasing involve a certain kind of destructive force, aggression and vandalism. On the other hand, I still believe that it is possible to create beautiful paintings and this actually is the driving force of my painting. I am fascinated by the combination of seemingly contradictory notions of breaking and creating, destroying and building of paintings on the basis of one’s own understanding of beauty, where the organic forms interlace with elements drawn from digital reality.
