Tomasz Tatarczyk’s work was inspired by nature, construed as an abstract idea manifesting itself in certain spaces. His paintings are insightful and analytical. The compositions are based on contrasts of simple motifs: a closed gate, tracks in snow, a lake. Tatarczyk’s oeuvre also includes many drawings. He studied at the Warsaw Academy of Fine Arts, earning his degree in 1981 in the studio of Prof. Jan Tarasin. He held fellowships with such institutions as the Kościuszko Foundation in New York, the Soros Foundation’s ArtsLink, and the Rockefeller Foundation. He collaborated with the Foksal Gallery in Warsaw beginning in 1985.
