A painting, where I’ve managed to depict the picture’s planes and the space issues in a more synthetic way.

It’s a special painting: it shows the depth of space with very different materials. This compilation of paint and shiny foil creates quite a surprising effect, a clash of textures and picture’s plans. It was inspired by the mountainous landscape of Crete – a place, where the smooth surface of the sea is cut by the huge mountain massifs.

“2001” series, 100 x 70 cm, tempera, pastels, 2001

This painting was previously shown in the National Museum in Gdańsk. It has been inspired by the poem, Labyrinth by the Sea, written by my favourite poet Zbigniew Herbert. It’s yet another example of the depth and air in a painting. Its vertical composition reflects the mountain ranges and deep rocky gorges, sometimes revealing the enormity of space that surrounds them.
