Temporary exhibition 2019

Trust in painting – Forgotten spirituality

The exhibition presents the work of Professor Lech Kołodziejczyk and is part of the celebration of the 40th anniversary of his creative work.

A new painting cycle started after 2015, called the METAPHYSICAL WEST OF THE SUN, includes painting works that are a clear continuation of the previous cycle THE BOOK OF THE SUN. The essence of the new cycle is the overwhelming feeling of passing away, the frailty of lasting, in which the perceptible momentary stabilization is inevitably connected with the state of fleetingness, the constant metamorphosis of what seems to be something specific and specific and expressive, and in fact it is only a brief emanation of something that in a moment will disappear forever. The inspiration here is the extremely moving and fascinating in its approach colorful and dramatic sunsets, observed in the marine landscape and in the richly colored relations of mountain spaces.


Lech Kołodziejczyk (born 1953 in Katowice) is a graduate of the Graphic Department in Katowice at the Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow, at present a Professor at the Art Institute in Cieszyn, University of Silesia in Katowice. He participated in dozens of individual and collective exhibitions at home and abroad, many times awarded. Celebrating the forty-year-long creative work in 2018, Kołodziejczyk is one of the most important artists of the Polish art world, and his creative significance emphasizes the presence of his works in galleries and private collections
