ear fellow artists,
I have to share with you my very emotional day 4th of April 2011.
On that day I had an exhibition organized and fully funded by support workers from Alice's Cottages in Blacktown.
All they wanted from me was to pack paintings and write my motivation and story to my series "Mother and Child".
The main subject was- fighting evil, and the title "Helloholism....Hellophobic ".(My idea of course)
OMG!!! Motivation? Story in English? It was very difficult task for my gently shrinked
ain but I knew I have to do it.
Before I took pen in hand I was writing my speech in my mind for a week. My
ain started to "swell" and I thought, that instead of head I had pumpkin on my neck. Laugh, laugh. I knew , that serious people were invited , serious viewers will look at my paintings, that is why my speech must be seriously well done, I thought. I did it!!!
Dear friends I promise to upload my works as quickly as possible but at the moment all I have is a computer, thanks God, and must rely on my friends. I am waiting for my pictures for my gallery.
In the mean time I will write my speech here , and titles of works I created for this part.
Read it, please but don't write here before I finish my speech. Thank you everyone for your patience and kindness.
Dear viewers, guests and friends,
My art is an order from Heaven and works I am presenting today were created for a reason to send a message to the whole WORLD.
As one of my favorite old masters P. Renoir said, " For my part, I am content to demand just one thing for a master piece, ENJOYMENT"
For my part, I am also content to demand just one thing for most pieces I created, REALITY OF LIFE.
It took me many years to find the way of showing how I see every aspect of life, doesn't matter good or bad.
It was impossible to express myself, writing poems or novels as I was born in Poland and half of my life I've spent over there.
Of course I can write English but I can't show my emotions in this language. That's why I decided to "write" my poems with the
ush and make them understood by everybody. I see my paintings as a visible poems and hope, that you'll see them the same way.
There are many issues in my life which sometimes pushed me to the edge but I know, that I am not the only one with this kind of issues.
Experiencing hell for 25 years made me see and understand how enormous damage evil can do to the families and whole humanity.
Many families all over the world are suffering or completely destroyed because of drugs and alcohol abuse, child molesters, rapists, robbers, murderess, domestic violence, negligent parents, etc...,etc...
" CRIMINAL MATTER" ( painting)
If a young woman drinks alcohol or takes drugs during her pregnancy , she is not a responsible, loving, caring future mother!
We can't expect, that her baby will be born as a perfect, little human.
In many cases this little human grows up in a wheel chair because was born without feet for example or completely deformed. The child who comes to this world from alcoholics or drug addicts usually has difficulties to learn, behave or fit in healthy society.
Nobody blames children as they didn't want to be born like that. There is a lot of help from our government. A lot of support is offered to children with mental and physical disabilities , not always caused by drugs and alcohol.
But if this kind of disabilities are caused by negligent parents , there should be zero tolerance for such parents.
One more painting is missing here, "Human rights"
I have no idea yet how to show this subject in painting but if I created one, it would very interesting one for sure.
Anyway, we should be very grateful, that children with issues like behavioral problem, and learning difficulties can attend special schools created for them.
As one of the carers, whose child attends this kind of school, and as an observer, I must say, that teachers and whole team who work over there don't have an easy task to teach such students.
their professional attitude toward children like my grandson amazes me.
I am also amazed with a great patience they have and devotion to this difficult profession .
That's why I decided to show teachers hard work in my paintings, which with a great pleasure I donated to Coreen School.
Paintings for school:
2. "Rocky way to the smooth path of life"
3. "Complicated stems"
4. "Kangaroos dance in bush"
