Przemysław Kaleński

“My painting is a matrix of experiences, emotions of the external and internal world. I draw my inspiration from careful observation of nature, processing and simplifying its elements, leading to abstraction and artistic synthesis. The space that I create with the leading element is a reflection on the richness of nature, its shapes, colors, play of light and shadow. Color in my painting plays an equivalent role to filling the shape with a specific drawing, but it is not always limited by that line. It is a way of constant searching and creative anxieties leaving a large margin of interpretation to recipients.”
