An original mixed media painting on canvas by Michal Wawrzyniak.
Another piece in a very specific style of this artist. At first glance, his paintings cleverly and openly give an impression of simplicity and sometimes infantility. However, there often remains an unsettling quality to the artwork that leaves the audience wanting to know more. Seemingly banal images, often executed with freedom and fluid movement of paint, tend to exuberate emotional gravitas and unsettling power. Artist plays brilliantly with vibrant and vivid colours in order to summon up the emotions of the viewer.
Following the way of simplicity within the ‘Naiveheart’ style is a deliberate move of this artist, who is also a psychologist by profession. The artist believes that the human psychology encapsulates so many unfulfilled desires – both emotional and intellectual and these extort energy of humankind. Simplicity, fun, imagination, dreams, some instinctual reactions are closer to the artist’s heart and give him happiness. Artist’s love for women- his mom, wife, mother-in-law, daughter drives him to attempt a change against the patriarchate world in which we live in. The artist hopes that the artwork he creates is a sign of the end of an era of this very patriarchate, that women are left to endure.
