ARTIST STATEMENT


 

Od kilku lat najbardziej interesują mnie warstwy obrazu. Żeby były widoczne, pracuję etapami. Często przez zamalowywanie i wymazywanie czyli odsłanianie kolejnych warstw. Te metody niosą ze sobą pewien rodzaj destrukcyjnej siły, agresji i wandalizmu. Z drugiej strony, organiczne formy i kolory które wynikają z tego procesu, mogą być w pewien sposób piękne i właśnie to jest siłą napędową mojego malarstwa. Fascynuje mnie połączenie dwóch pozornie przeciwstawnych pojęć: niszczenia i tworzenia, destrukcji i budowania. 

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.
