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.

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.

One shall not succumb to the catastrophism of renovations though – we still can be reached

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?
