Each of Śliwiński’s pieces are a unique event. As he says himself, he often leaves things up to chance in his paintings; he chooses not to closely control the way the paint trickles down from the brush. The pieces with organic and animal motifs were inspired by old biology atlases. Untitled (Fish) shows disturbing underwater creatures, predatory deep-sea fish that, by means of two perpendicular lines, have been locked away behind the painting’s aquarium glass.
