I paint my pictures on anodized aluminum plates as supports, which I consider to be one of the most durable ones, which you can read about in professional literature. Painted in 2020, the picture, tentatively called “Gruzfall”, measuring 124 cm high by 100 cm in the base, is to date a record holder in terms of the time spent on its creation, oscillating around four months. Such a long period resulted from the adoption of the painting method, which I chose from two, namely: either I transform a waterfall into ruins, mainly architecture, or a riuna into a waterfall. I chose the latter, much more labor-intensive, requiring the use of fine brushes for the entire “water” surface, of which I used a dozen, if not several dozen. Then the worked out detail started to blur, remake, shade appropriately until the final form. The idea for its creation was inspired by the earlier work, i.e. a square waterfall placed inside a huge space. This picture was hanging on my wall and at one point, while peeking, I saw a vision connecting the decaying buildings with the waterfall in front of me, and I immediately imagined, or rather “heard” the accompanying huge boom. While sketching I already knew that there was no point in sticking to one scale and only architecture. Thus, apart from the various sizes of scraps of architecture, there are the strangest elements that came to my mind relatively freely, or other elements that I “saw” in the spots while painting. In this work – colloquially speaking – I gave free rein to my imagination and the number of quirks grew with the time of painting the picture. The bottom was originally supposed to be simplified, consisting only of a railing and a sniffing dog, but the imagination won. “Gruzfall” gave rise to derived visions and its versions will certainly appear in the future. The picture is certainly for viewers who like detail, patient, analyzing the work centimeter by centimeter, because there are a whole lot of fantastic, incomprehensible or even intentionally contradictory elements, which I do not want to indicate so that the viewer can discover more of them over time and perhaps seeing the seeds of future images. All this in a sea of ​​questions and reflections.
