I had a dream

An atelier full of paintings – of life and dreams. No devising – intuition instead. There is no need to devise things as themes, since ideas just pop up on their own. And most often in sleep. Everyday life is reflected in dreams, and dreams can see themselves in the paintings.

Holy Mother!

The devil lurks behind the cross? Come to find out and hear the artist’s confession – on 22 December, in vernissage. We begin at 7:00 p.m.

Holy figures from near the Jasna Góra Monastery? Yes, but without boredom or cliché. Fantasy and a wink, instead. Jacek Łydżba deals with traditional devotional articles and plays with the sweetness of church-fair kitsch. The dress of the Mother of God flows with blood and burns with roses, while Jesus’ garments look as if they were taken from a Bollywood movie.
The latest exhibition of Jacek Łydżba’s works entitled ‘Holy Mother!’ means playing with conventions and tradition, overcoming stereotypes creatively and being free of iconoclastic gestures.
