In his new painting series, Karol Prochacki tirelessly and consistently explores the pictorial form. The fascination with colour, pouring stain and penetration of layers result in expressive compositions. Hypnotic and radiant with its inner glow.
The artist balances on the edge of landscape and abstraction, giving his canvases ambiguous dimension. He appeals to the sensitivity of the viewer, thus provoking one to encounter the world of personal associations and experiences.
Upon working on 'Etudes' series, the artist was accompanied by Frederic Chopin’s Etudes, which have naturally become an important part of the creative process. This raises the question - to what extent, if any, a piece of music with its rhythm and energy is translatable to the matter of painting?
