Artist Statement
Piotr Gardecki
The new set of paintings has been made in two parts: September 2008 to February 2009 in Scotland, and October 2009 to February 2010 in Poland. To create new work I have researched monotype graphic techniques. The sketches in monotype have been inspired by 19th and 20th century photographs of industrial architecture. Now I am converting monotype sketches of industrial architecture into oil paintings. I am interested in new ways of realization between realism and abstraction. For this reason, I have limited the subject matter so as to focus on multiple layers. My spectator should have a chance to stimulate his/her imagination by looking at these paintings. My research contains 21 oil paintings on canvas and 48 monotypes.
