Tomasz Baran

BORN 1985, Stalowa Wola

The basis of Tomasz Baran’s art is a profound reflection on art history. The artist consistently researches abstraction in painting – reworking and quoting its forms. The results are large-format pieces that combine geometric rigour with the lightness of the painterly gesture. Tomasz Baran graduated from the National College of Fine Arts in Rzeszów and studied painting at the Cracow Academy of Fine Arts. He has had solo exhibitions at galleries such as f.a.i.t and Delikatesy in Cracow.

Description

Tomasz Baran combines an expressive gesture with elaborate composition, a harmony of colours with a colour cacophony, and the sense of an endless, open composition with materiality. This materiality is emphasised by visible stains of paint and stitched together fragments of canvas. The element of surprise was not the artist's key intention, the work is rather a compilation of one hundred years of experience in abstract art, not a search for innovative form.
