High Dive III/46 94.9.29

1994, oil, canvas, 230 × 180 cm

The High Dive dynamics have been developed to an internal rhythm. This seemingly non-representational painting by Jarosław Fliciński impresses the viewer with its power of geometrical order. A grid-like design revealing a pattern of swimming-pool tiles is the main feature of this composition—a reference to minimalist thinking, traces of fascination with op-art discernible as well. The work originates from a series of multi-coloured patterns painted since 1993. This was when the artist invited performance artist Gary Hell to collaborate, and shot the video Exercises in Ideology: The High Dive, with Hell posing against Fliciński’s paintings. Pieces by the artist extend beyond intellectual play on space. They are also examples of art engaging the viewer, art co-created by gaze and reception.
