The labyrinth is a recurring theme in Łukasz Majcherowicz’s art. With each painting the artist ventures deeper on the journey into his unconscious, down the byways of reality. He tries to understand himself and the world. He poses questions but offers no answers.
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.
