Late symptoms of death

Divagations on art and death. The ART Gallery cordially invites you to the exhibition of paintings by Łukasz Huculak, entitled ‘Late Symptoms of Death’ – an artistic accent during Holy Week. For a long time, Huculak believed that the gravity of a skull – this crown of still life – is inevitably suffused with the grotesque. For years he would treat painting skulls as a painter’s training, almost meditational, until the motif grew in strength and the painting reached the appropriate state of matter. The existential burden and the chill of constructivism merged into a painting.

"It was a real youthful delight”

The presented catalogue of drawings entitled „Dwurnik. Od początku” (“Dwurnik. From the beginning”) constitutes a result of the exhibition which was prepared for the Sołtysiński Kawecki & Szlęzak law firm in autumn 2016.

The lawyers celebrated 25th anniversary of the company and we honored Edward Dwurnik with another exhibition. There is never too much of such celebrations. After cities and abstractions, there was time to go back to the beginnings of his work. We selected mainly early drawings from the 60s and added some from the 70s and the 80s to add some variety. Each decade brings something different – collage, marker, topics.
You may go crazy while watching those drawings! The preciseness and detail takes your breath away! Masterful skill, sharp observation sense, fun. It makes you want to say “Amazing!” It makes you wonder how he did that.
Such enquiries are summed up by Edward Dwurnik’s response “True, those are genius works! It was a real youthful delight.”
