Exhibited: #paintingsamerica, solo show, Gallery r_z / ORz ZPAP, Rzeszow, 2019 In the paintings from the American cycle by Piotr Szczur, the viewer can often only see isolated artifacts, short quotes from a broader context, cropped fragments of small and large United States structures: a billboard greeting travelers entering Utah, a single span of San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge, cars whose silhouettes shine in the sun, or the famous inscription on the Hollywood hills. By means of a simple sign, a small section of the remembered reality, the artist presents the recipient with the very essence, a subjective summary of the cultural landscape of modern America that has developed especially from the beginning of the twentieth century. However, it should also be noted that, although Piotr Szczur shows the American landscape from the perspective of a tourist, in his paintings we find a deep understanding and personal relation to the places he visited. Despite moving away from realism and the fragmented way of framing reality, the artist is able to show the viewer a unique atmosphere: the characteristic climate of Arizona's red deserts, empty interstate highways, or the bustling beaches of the West Coast. That is why the paintings from the "Made in USA" series contain such an extremely intriguing interpretive ambiguity. Almost every one of them can function simultaneously as an autonomous landscape, a fixed testimony of the process of formal evolution of the artist's works, a very subjective representation of the remembered place, and also a sign, a symbol of the United States as a whole. - Marcin Krajewski

The trip to the USA that I made in 2015 had a significant impact on my work. I changed the style and theme of my paintings. On Route 66, I felt a freedom that redefined my art. American culture is an inexhaustible source of inspiration for me - both in terms of the subject and the search for new formal solutions. My favorite frame for my paintings is 1:1. This is currently the only restriction I have imposed on myself.
