At the beginning of 1990s I was invited to participate in artistic actions taking place in the urban space of Wrocław. The said actions were initiated and organised by painters Eugeniusz Minciel and Lech Twardowski. In those times, such actions were innovative and unique: they were the only ones held in Poland.
1990 – Painted Tower, 19x9 meters. The action consisted in a prior preparation by the various artists of artistic objects: paintings that had 10x9m military tank tarpaulins as their starting “base.” The said paintings were then installed vertically on the scaffolding of the Garrison Church tower in the Main Square. Starting with independently functioning paintings, we aimed at integrating them into a common whole – an artistic installation.
1991 – Parachutes. The action consisted in placing artistic objects: paintings that had parachutes as their starting “base” in the northern section of Wrocław’s Main Square. Each artist conveyed their own painting ideas onto parachute surfaces. Thus prepared paintings were then mounted along the northern section of the Main Square, at the 3rd floor level horizontally over the street, thereby creating an installation of paintings hanging over the heads of passers-by.

“My private area of protected landscape"

“The amazing prodigality of nature in the use of blue”


The art is associated with the nature just as much as it is related to the man. / as the man is bound to her. Artist standing on the border of relation between the culture and nature is a link of these two worlds, a sensitive recipient and a sender. “The amazing prodigality of nature in the use of blue" is a continuation of the project “My private area of protected landscape”. The world is an indivisible unity and it belongs to both the nature and the man, his work and his art. The exhibition which is a summary of the project, presents a complete cycle and will be created as a painting space in which the image (painting) will be understood as part of the world, fulfilling the function of communication within the same world and realised only a certain degree of perfection. The world of art and artists, a variety of artistic attitudes is really infinite and cannot be grasped just like the world of nature. Each element is of the essence of macro and micro perspective.

Consequence of my painting attitude is an important element of diversity and complement the creation of a common consciousness and yet I feel like an integral part of nature.

“My private area of protected landscape" - consists of open, paint compositions about 4 max 7 m, consisting of 77 modules x110cm creating a pictorial space that, depending on the capabilities of the exhibition can grow or narrow. At the same time each component of a larger whole is a finite, self-image.

Construction of painting environment is a direct reference to nature, which consists of an unlimited number of elements, and these elements function in an infinite number of combinations. It is difficult to remain indifferent towards this fascinating ability of nature to the variability and uniqueness and ability to evolve.

Nature can create itself, through the creation of spatial forms, unique structures existing for a moment or centuries, changing color and light depending on time of day or year.

Painting measures are used in a way that extends the boundaries of the image - the space beyond the image and the space within the image - an image not having a permanent stroke and line stopping. Aspect of the fragment to form a whole and the relationship - background (the voice that reaches the empty space, having equal importance of form and colour).

Painting-Image understood in this way - there is nothing in the illusionist, is purely visual and aesthetic sensation, intuitively engineered by the artist and generating an infinite number of worlds. The value is what is elusive and unnamed variables and the viewer is actively cooperates in the creation of new meanings, and meanings.
