Description

Until the late 1980s, Ryszard Woźniak was a member of the neo-expressionist "Gruppa" collective, with its characteristic, “wild” style. Bibliothek dates from a later period. The artist uses a limited colour range, reduces the spatial relationships, and, in a way, focuses on issues that go beyond the space of the image itself. Woźniak studies the notion of the library, of culture as a collection of metaphors, man’s relationship with nature. The painting bears an erudite, morphological title, characteristic of the artist, based on the word theke, Greek for “case.”
