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.

Adam Patrzyk - Insomnia

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..."

Insomnia – the exhibition of the latest paintings by Adam Patrzyk in the ART Gallery is an invitation into the artist’s mysterious world – a world without people, where empty rooms resemble theatre decorations, and enormous book-filled libraries or facades with empty windows create inner tension and make one ponder.
This time the main themes are big city landscapes, skyscrapers with tiny spots of glowing windows, railway bridges, streets and crossroads – the city as an industrial monster at any time of day or night where hidden life takes its course.
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. His art is magical, which means it arouses an obscure desire to enter these paintings, dwell within their frames without realising right away whether it’s good or bad. (…) The city in some of the paintings simply becomes a towering tool with thousands of windows and stripes which become colourful keyboards playing the same recurring fabulous motif”.
