Artist Statement

I am a Windsor-based artist who received a MFA degree from the Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow, Poland in 1980. I moved to Canada in 1987. For the past 20 years my work has evolved from figurative experimentation to abstraction.

 Recently, my paintings have been based on narrative languagethat includes the following four factors.  First, the main theme may be reflective of my life or a philosophical reflection of it in Canada or elsewhere.  Second, elements from my cultural and geographical background in Poland that have influenced my artwork include female figures, mermaids, birds, trees, Easter eggs, churches, etc.  In addition to the foregoing, my graphic and compositional education has strongly influenced every aspect of my work. The third factor that is of importance includes symbols and characteristics derived from foreign countries I have visited in recent years. A prime example is Nicaragua. These elements include the sun, volcanoes, ocean waves, palm trees, pre-colonial architecture (especially the beautiful metal gates), and snakes.  Incorporating the beautiful, bright colors of those into my paintings to achieve optimal visual effect is a prime objective in my work.

Fourth factor is about cars and the car industry. It is a reflection of my thoughts and admiration of the auto industry and car related activities. Having lived in Windsor for more than ten years has resulted in developing a bond with the local artistic community. Many of its members, including my family, depend on the auto industry in a variety of ways.

All of these factors have motivated me to continue experimenting in this way for several years.
