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.

Radek Zielonka - an invader from Łódź

A great emergence. After his studies in Warsaw and numerous travels Zielonka came back to his hometown. On the distant outskirts, in the house whose windows overlook a mobile network tower, he is trying to keep his distance from the world.

His only regret is that there is no river in Łódź. A city without a river is incomplete, so he gets away to Warsaw with its Vistula River and its parties. In his secluded home he leads the life of a reclusive artist. ‘Painting isn’t easy,’ he says. ‘Sometimes you need to get drunk with the painting, soldier on until the small hours.’
