An idea hidden in things

Buildings, edifices, objects. Anchored in our memory, in our thinking about cities, outskirts, in images of different journeys, in perception of a rural road, a sea shore, a terrace, a backyard. The roughness of concrete, the smell of timber, the vermillion of brick, the colour of neon. A house, a palace, a factory, a station. An arbour in the park, a gateway, a swimming pool, a springboard, a gasoline station. Light falling onto the floor, walls, the asphalt of the road. Encoded views, landscapes complemented with architecture.

An idea hidden in things

August 2011

see exhibition

High-Pressure Area by Sebastian Skoczylas

His paintings are made of colour. His artistic thermometer shows a subtle and rich colour range.

‘At first, my painting may be coolly-warm and then it may become warmly-cool or the other way round. Then there are times it can be almost totally homogeneous,’ says Sebastian. ‘What I am mostly interested in is what’s happening on the border of the warm and cool areas, and how they interact. It is where the energy of the hues is released. That’s the nature of colour’.

The exhibition in Galeria Elektor is a rare opportunity to see a greater number of Skoczylas’ works. He purposefully paints very little, once in a blue moon, since he has a regular job in an advertising agency. It’s worth going to the vernissage to see the most handsome painter related to Galeria Art.
