In today’s world – in an age when traditional patterns are threatened by globalisation, when value hierarchies are being blurred by the dominant liberal ideology and when the autonomy and individuality of the artistic message is being undermined by advertisements, billboards, spots and clips – the individual artist’s manual and craftsman like dexterity are in greater than ever demand for me.
My works refer to the tradition of the Polish school of poster art, a poster art which was philosophical, brief, at the same time, harbouring ambitions of a wider social resonance.
There are symbolic pictures of an autobiographical and existential character. Autobiography became a shelter and a starting-point for my work.
The painter’s image – “corporeality of Art” are the counterweight to the stereotype proposed by the media, the counterweight to the virtual reality of the electronic media.
