eagles


The cycle of paintings inspired by the Polish emblem, the White Eagle and made in an original technique of whipping the canvas by leather whips and paints. The process of creating it consists of connecting painting with performance. It is recorded and after processing, the film accompanies the painting as an integral part of the work. This is important because my paintings explore the symbol of the eagle in the context by which the paintings are made as well as by changing the colours of the eagles, historical and current events  in Poland.  They are also the attempt at catching the reflection of contemporary Polish patriotism condition. Depending on the painting, in my films, the shots and the dynamic of the action changes.
