I consider my photographic creation as a poetic experience in which I drown and infuse myself and, as a result, it gives me the feeling that I am reborn with each portrait into a new being. Although, all of my photographs are self-portraits, they shouldn’t be necessarily read as self-presentations, rather they should be revealed as the multiplicity of “selves” available to one individual. To put it succinctly, my attitude towards the self is more of an exploratory journey between an awareness of self and an unawareness of some aspects of oneself.
Most of my work is inspired by the poetry of a famous Polish poet-Halina Poswiatowska. As a linguist, I find beauty in its simplicity, metaphorical message, and liberty of interpretation.
I search for the same values while depicting the meaning of her poems in my works. My preferred medium so far has been photography; although, I feel I would love to experiment with others (painting, art/text, collage) in the future.
My images encompass the motifs of love, longing and solitude. Slow, silent and at times painful, these portraits being self-portraits whisper in silence, cry in loneliness or scream in suffering, always between love and death.
My objective to re-examine the eternal question of human existence is the one Poswiatowska probes in her poem:
entangle between love and death
an anecdote about being
I'd like to grow an exclusive community of lovers of my art, who by showing their interest, generosity, and having insight into my vision, will become its exclusive owners/collectors.
I feel like my work comes to life when I can see it on paper. Sadly, I discovered this truth little late. My journey into self-portraiture began in 2013. Only after three years later, I saw my first prints, and then I realized how much I lost earlier. In 2016 I started exhibiting my photography at national and international group exhibitions, art shows and arts festivals. I try to print as much as I can afford, mostly recent pieces, but my ultimate dream as an artist is to see all of my creations breathe on paper. All the contributions from my Patreon campaign will fund a little budget for printing more new works that haven't seen the light of day yet.
In exchange for your generosity, I will be more than happy to reward you with my original signed printed works (Limited Editions of 90 prints, and Collector's Editions of 10 prints) as well as whatever my intellectual property as a creator is (handmade items based on my works, Artist's Books, mini photo publications, insights into my artistic process, thoughts etc.).
