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.

All that jazz

Portraits of musicians, bands and instruments by Krzysztof Kokoryn are being exhibited at the Levekusen Jazz Festival near Cologne.

Kokoryn is excellent at translating sounds, rhythm and the concert atmosphere into the language of painting. Being a friend of many musicians (e.g. famous for Voo Voo’s videoclips), he does not paint without music. His ability to see musical motifs is so unbelievable that the world’s most renowned jazz people identify with it. The foreword to the “Jazz” exhibition catalogue was written by an American drummer, Peter Erskine. Fascinated with Kokoryn’s art and his ability to capture “the swing” on canvas, Peter Erskine used his painting as the cover for “Music for Moderns” album by The Lounge Art Ensemble and now he has invited the artist to Leverkusen.
