About The Artwork

diptych, shaped canvas ( 2 triangles of same size: 100x140 cm), This work was commissioned by particular collectioners for particular place: a staircase in theire hous. As a theme I have chosen one of my foto's of NY (sun set), for its strong perspectief witch sucks as up to the sky. To make this effect even stronger I fallowed perspective lines in the frame. So it became shaped canvas. Why the second triangle is up side down? Up and down is our movemant on the stairs. This revers directions are as day and night expressed by same theme in colour and black/white versions. However in this staircase doesn't matter which direction you choos, you always go to the sky. In additionel foto's you can fallow the proces of making relief on the surface of my canvas, with diferent materials. Using this method I emphasize diferent levels of our perception of reality which never has only one face. My paintngs as reality have many faceses but only when one moves one is able to notice them.

Born in 1956, Krakow, living and working in Amsterdam since 1982. I am an independent artist, also Art Teacher specialized in Painting Portrait and Model.

Architectural paintings. Photography in the making process. Oil and acrylic on (sometimes shaped) canvas. Synthesis (balance) of realism and abstraction. Reflective on the art of painting itself.

Architecture is my major all-embracing theme. Regarded within social and historical context architecture itself, ancient or utmost modern, reflects not only abstract ideas and principles of design, but also indicates the vulnerability of the human condition.

Photography is so to speak the equivalent of my sketchbook. With kind of snapshots I am exploring fragments of reality. Photographic fragmentation itself often defines the forms of my canvasses; it enables a serial way of working.

I once had the experience of bliss when I found a very special technique of preparing the canvas. In each painting some parts of the canvas are left unprimed, purposefully revealing the texture and color of the linen canvas. This creates an edge or relief between different levels throughout the image. This process is deeply embedded in each image and has become an additional force of my creative spectrum.
