KASIA KMITA - MUST HAVE IT
Bielska Gallery BWA
Opening: 03/02, 6 pm.

3 Maja Street no.11, Bielsko-Biała
Curator: Joanna Stembalska (BWA Wrocław)


Must Have It is the title of the latest Kasia Kmita`s exhibition, Wrocław artist, whose creative activity remonstrates omnipresent codes of visual identification and by bold combination of global brands with laborious technique of traditional łowicka creativity it suggests the need of defining the new folksiness phenomena. Kmita is known for her works combining traditional, handmade cut-outs with popculture symbols, using motives from media world and publicity on the same basis as former folk artists immortalized motives from surrounding nature.     
The latest Kmita`s project oscillates around the problem of esthetic changes which took place after 1989 in Poland. She comments irreverently on mental matrixes of contemporary times, desire to possess luxury goods, manic labeling of everyday life, paying homage to logotypes and icons of popculture.

Czesław Wieczorek, Portrait of a Woman, 1982, oil, canvas, 90x70 cm

CZESŁAW WIECZOREK - PAINTING

 

Retrospective exhibition of painting by Czesław Wieczorek, an artist who has developed a unique and recognizable style. His creative work is marked with an enormous sensitivity of experience.

The artist - uncouth and persistent in his refusal to be reconciled with reality - wishes to express his unrelenting anger. Although the visual aspect of his work is in a way reminiscent of the Early Orthodox icon, its contents, consisting of allegorical and apocalyptical messages are completely different.
The exhibition contains several dozen paintings by the artist, the oldest of which, Frozen Time, dates back to 1965.

The exhibition is open from 6 January to 12 February 2012.
