Małgorzata Jastrzębska: Exhibitions
On The Revolutions of Colours
Concentric circles with multicoloured fragments, overlapping colours, luminosity, spinning impressions and kaleidoscopic volatility – the geometric compositions of Małgorzata Jastrzębska stem from the experience of the great abstractionists of the twentieth century – Robert and Sonia Delaunay, Francis Picabia and Frantisek Kupka. In her paintings, the colour is the form and the motif and the luminous spheres of purple and cadmium yellow, rose and green, black and white unfold according to a rigorous structure.
Kaleidoscope (Under the Stairs)
Małgorzata Jastrzębska has rejected picturesque-ness of orphism. Her forms have sharp edges – one can tell she uses a masking tape when painting to make the separation of the colours unequivocal and definite. Although she paints with a soft brush and oil paints it looks as if she was using a compass and a scalpel. There are mathematics and physics textbooks on the table in her studio.
