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.

Adam Patrzyk - Insomnia

Marek Bieńczyk writes in the exhibition catalogue that "the infatuation with the world created by Adam Patrzyk comes in no time and you ask yourself if you should go to these places or avoid them..."

Insomnia – the exhibition of the latest paintings by Adam Patrzyk in the ART Gallery is an invitation into the artist’s mysterious world – a world without people, where empty rooms resemble theatre decorations, and enormous book-filled libraries or facades with empty windows create inner tension and make one ponder.
This time the main themes are big city landscapes, skyscrapers with tiny spots of glowing windows, railway bridges, streets and crossroads – the city as an industrial monster at any time of day or night where hidden life takes its course.
Marek Bieńczyk writes in the exhibition catalogue that “the infatuation with the world created by Adam Patrzyk comes in no time and you ask yourself if you should go to these places or avoid them. His art is magical, which means it arouses an obscure desire to enter these paintings, dwell within their frames without realising right away whether it’s good or bad. (…) The city in some of the paintings simply becomes a towering tool with thousands of windows and stripes which become colourful keyboards playing the same recurring fabulous motif”.
