BIOGRAPHY

about the painter

I am an oil painter, exploring the subtle transience of light in landscape. My ubiquitous skies refer to a universal space of collective memory.

Though I was born in Krakow, Poland, from the age of nine, I lived in Kuwait with my family. I then moved to Canada, where I received my formal art training at the Ontario College of Art and Design. While continuing to pursue international travel which deeply inspires my work, my take on landscape is touched by a uniquely personal treatment of light and space; for just as movement has figured a major role in my life, so it becomes the focus in my work.

My paintings depict large open spaces, such as skies and surfaces, defined by pattern formations always on the brink of change. The skyscapes strive to capture that elusive movement, in an atmospheric blurring of boundaries between land, water, and sky representational moving towards abstract. In this subtle fluidity where nothing is constant, mass suddenly dematerializes while sky takes on substance, space becoming tangible.
