Łukasz Huculak Skull Size: 20x30

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.

Holy Mother!

The devil lurks behind the cross? Come to find out and hear the artist’s confession – on 22 December, in vernissage. We begin at 7:00 p.m.

Holy figures from near the Jasna Góra Monastery? Yes, but without boredom or cliché. Fantasy and a wink, instead. Jacek Łydżba deals with traditional devotional articles and plays with the sweetness of church-fair kitsch. The dress of the Mother of God flows with blood and burns with roses, while Jesus’ garments look as if they were taken from a Bollywood movie.
The latest exhibition of Jacek Łydżba’s works entitled ‘Holy Mother!’ means playing with conventions and tradition, overcoming stereotypes creatively and being free of iconoclastic gestures.
