Description

The space depicted in Zbigniew Makowski’s painting has been termed “romantic geometry.” It is filled with geometric figures, mathematical formulas, and Greek and Latin inscriptions. The artist likes to quote from art history as a repository of human imagination. Faces of the women he portrays bring to mind figures from paintings of the great modern masters. These artistic transformations and the mysterious, vague symbolism make up for a unique riddle in which one can easily detect Surrealist inspirations. For all the ambiguity of the representation, Makowski remains faithful to traditional painting techniques.
