We'll kiss each other's lips

May 2009

I do prefer to use photos. And we are all surrounded by them, aren’t we? These days people never stop taking photos with their mobile phones. That’s our world and this world inspires me.

Dark, blue, compact shape of a Mini Cooper on the background of a pink plaster, falling off a sunny wall in Carpentras. Backstreet like thousands of others. But this one is seen at a morning hour, when the sky blue is still wet, when everything still remains a pure hope. Church bell ringing nearby. Truffle market to begin soon. In order to see all this, one needs to depart for a trip first, to leave one’s everyday life behind, forget everything, sit on a kerb in order to contemplate a stone wall. Because Sadowski, just like the old Japanese masters, unites precise description of nature with its contemplation. This is exactly what makes the essence of his art.

2014.04.22

There are two major effects of Jacek Łydżba’s visit to the Print Room in the University of Warsaw Library. Firstly, there is a series of paintings inspired by the graphic art of Albrecht Dürer, and secondly, the artist’s exhibition on the premises of the University of Warsaw Library. Against the background of grey, concrete walls we will see Łydżba’s interpretations of Dürer’s motifs: plants, angels, landscapes. A bold artistic gesture and the sheer joy of colour.
