20 March - 12 April 2015
vernissage: 6 pm, Friday, 20 March


Exhibition of pastel paintings with an exceptional series of nocturnes showing backstreets and hidden corners of Bielsko-Biała with cobblestones shimmering in the nightlight, or the coruscating surface of the River Biała, flowing through the city. Also noteworthy are the near abstract works focusing on the textures of dilapidated wooden structures, and a series of portraits with psychological, realistic and dreamlike portraits, depending on the personality of the model. The works are highly diverse in terms of the use of colour - from monochromatic to multi-coloured.
