Jarosław Modzelewski – Scattered Paintings

The latest series of Jaroslaw Modzelewski’s paintings is not a consolidated whole. When looked at together, these works evade any narrrative generalisation, although they have a common denominator in the reality experienced by the artist in his daily environment, in the place where he lives and his surroundings. The Garden at Night (2008) or “The Barge” Bar (2007) refer to the scenery known to the artist from his daily observation and his trips to Zegrzynski Lake; however, one would find it difficult to perceive any records of reality in them. The Scattered Paintings speak rather about the way in which the artist experiences, sees and feels while constantly finding “many reasons to paint” in his environment. 
Landscapes halted in a stand-still, with their imaginative, rich colours, gain the aura of unreal places. Although modestly represented, these large-scale images are saturated with emotion and, also, an ironical distance to their translation into a painterly mode. For example, the way-ward Astronomy Lover (2007), as the artist himself suggests, looks into a telescope, yet the telescope is not directed towards the sky but to a garden lamp, which sheds light only partially onto a viewed scene.
