Adventures ahead

Zaktualizowano: 9 gru 2019

Instead of introduction.



When I am thinking about my creative process and all these years I have spent on painting there is one word that always comes to me - adventure. Since the very beginning.


As adventure I consider something that happens but you do not really understand it. Not only you don't understand what it is, but you don't know why it happens, how, what for? But it happens. It is really happening.


What? Basically I am talking about the pictures that come/appear to me and 'want' to be painted/materialized. How they appear, how they change in time, how sometimes they come back etc.


Where? On my canvas, on my paper; in my head. And I think in all this is also involved a place outside my world. Or a thing that is from somewhere else, which I cannot call. In the end this is what the adventure is about - being outside your known reality! Or dealing with something unknown.


I have been painting/drawing almost every day for the last 5 years and for me it still feels strange talking about the 'pictures that appear in my head' because I know how crazy it sounds. It does. For me too. But this is the base and reason of my work, so if I am supposed to write about my painting it is absolutely impossible to skip this subject.

As said - adventure is something you don't really understand. So it is in my case.


But I have been doing writings about what happens for around 1,5 year trying to get some conclusions about art and painting. Did I manage? Few small conclusions - probably yes. But mostly it is about asking myself questions and triyng to find answers. So rare to get ones. But writing also became an adventure. From being on top of a mountain and seeing everything clearly to getting lost in a dark labirynth.


I decided to make some of my writings public. Why? Maybe good idea to answer next time.

No plan. Possibly sometimes I will publish some of the things I have written months ago (probably updated as/if I already changed my mind, discovered something).


Wanted to say that I prefer to write about current events but... in art everything is so strangely interconnected that I truly doubt in the concept of time in this context. Another subject to write about!
