The Road

1998, charcoal, paper, 70 × 100 cm

A black asphalt surface emerges from beneath a layer of snow. The viewer can practically hear the sounds of mud splashing and the engine droning, and smell the frosty air. The Road is a painted record of a piece of reality. The world of Tomasz Tatarczyk’s paintings is pared down, developed with the use of items abstracted from nature: trees, country roads, water. The colour palette has been reduced, the number of elements restricted, but united in a hugely dynamic abstract composition. The artist made sure that his paintings would depict reality, remaining free of irrelevant ornamentation.
