Upon entering the gallery, I realise I shall not avoid confrontation. One is immediately involved in dialogue by the vibrant composition. The sublime tints that fluctuate, crossfade, or even transgress the canvas themselves, will not leave the onlooker indifferent. Though the author says, 'It is just paint', the vast spectrum of immense artistic endeavour and colours of noble nature have been pulled together to create works of fine nature whose value does not pivot around predefined and attributed content. The artist uses the element of observation that allows a peculiar looking glass that reflects the observer.
Often times, when conversing with Prochacki's art recipients, I come across the word 'landscape'. I believe it is a trope, not the key, though. It is crucial to comprehend that these 'spaces' are filled with emotion, insight and wisdom that can be appreciated only when one accepts an invitation to a cognitive process and looks at their inner self in a close-up. I confided in those emotions, for my own part. In their depth, I have experienced an innermost conversation with myself.
