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.
The Night of Museums disrupts our sleep pattern. Instead of heading for bed, we are queuing, yawning incessantly..
People expecting conventional paintings happen to visit my atelier, looking for well-defined Kossak-like works and such. They go into my orbit and in their eyes I can sometimes see admiration and some other times horror. It’s because they have never ever before seen such intense colours and such verve in operating layers of paint. And I am not afraid of painting, I have no fear of canvas.
To see what it’s like to live together and paint separately for 23 years, to judge ‘the state of affairs after 23 years’, one should visit the exhibition of works by Bogna Gniazdowska and Mikołaj Kasprzyk in the Konduktorownia Gallery in Czestochowa. Both being faithful to themselves, the artists keep autonomy of their own art.
Portraits of musicians, bands and instruments by Krzysztof Kokoryn are being exhibited at the Levekusen Jazz Festival near Cologne.
Marek Bieńczyk writes in the exhibition catalogue that "the infatuation with the world created by Adam Patrzyk comes in no time and you ask yourself if you should go to these places or avoid them..."
Having a talk over a carp. Just for fun.
Or: Still life with carp
The exhibition of paintings by Katarzyna Swinarska entitled “Pocałujmy się w usta” ('We'll kiss each other's lips')
The day on the beaches of Miami. The night in jazz clubs. Strong cocktails and a total blast. Darek Pala and Szymon Parafiniak meet at an exhibition at the Café Kulturalna.
Krakowskie Przedmieście, the artery which used to guarantee treacle of clients for the ART gallery is currently under construction. The view in front of the gallery is a bit surreal. Construction site or Verdun battlefield?
