A painting – a window
A painting – a window. Onto the world, into oneself. More into oneself than onto the world. The experience of the outside world prompts the artist to search for further fissures of reality, which lead him further into painting and the spiritual world. These rectangular pictures, which in this case he calls “windows”, are moments of pause in contemplation, in the question about the meaning of existence. The eponymous “windows” give the canvases metaphorical meanings.
Łukasz Majcherowicz’s painting is always an art of contemplation. Be it in monochromatic compositions or in more contrasting, vibrating with colours, almost op-art paintings. Strong, pure colours are a novelty for him. Just like the large formats of his canvases, the Way and the Goal are defined: poetic mood and existential questions, expressed in geometric abstraction. The mystery of existence enclosed in the rectangle of the painting.
The presentation of Łukasz Majcherowicz’s works from the Windows cycle is yet another exhibition without an audience at the Galeria Art. After a year of living in isolation, after “the year that wasn’t”, after months full of fear, sadness and hope, these paintings – personal records of the artist’s emotions – acquire a universal character: in them, as in mirrors or windows, our feelings are reflected.
