Tomasz Tatarczyk

1947-2010,

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.

Description

The black surface of the tarmac emerges from under snow. The viewer can almost hear the sound of splashing mud, the monotonous drone of the engine, and smell the frosty air. The Road is a painterly illustration of a fragment of simple, everyday reality. The world of Tatarczyk’s paintings and drawings is pared-down, built using elements abstracted from nature: trees, country roads, and water. The colour palette is reduced, the number of elements limited, and yet they make for a visually pleasing, highly dynamic composition. The artist made sure that his work reflected reality without any unnecessary embellishment.
