Coral reefs, or Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea
The paintings by Krzysztof Pająk begin where the light is about to stop. At first, there is the dive into the abyss – the big blue, navy blue – almost blackness, darkness. Next comes the experience of a brand new world of coral reefs. A revelation, a fairytale, a day-dream, the pulsation of colour, and sensuality so different from the one on the surface.
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.
