A selection of paintings from the years 1997 through

to the present.

The magical atmosphere of cities at dusk, at dawn

and at night are merely pretexts for reflection, to which

I envelop in my work.

My works have been created both in Poland and in Ireland which have been my closest surroundings - those of the cities of Warsaw and Dublin.

Darkness is something undefined and vague in its form.

It gives planty of options for subjective interpretation,

and therefore fires my imagination. A dazzling flood

of light makes the refined shapes blurred and eliminates inessential details. And so, with the use of the two opposite matters - that of light and darkness - the reduction is made and what is vital is all that remains

to be seen. The rest is sheer realism - the realism

and projections of my emotions.
