SURREALIST EXECUTION, BY ANDRZEJ WRÓBLEWSKI

17:44 - By ART FOR HUMAN RIGHTS 0


Andrzej Wróblewski was one of Poland's most outstanding and most independent post-war artists. He created his own individual, highly suggestive, and prolific formula of figurative painting that continued to inspire and became a reference point for several generations of artists who came after him.
His series Rozstrzelania / Executions, dating from the end of the 1940s, provides some good examples of this type of composition. These scenes of events during the German occupation of Poland are exceptional for the intensity of feeling they provoke. The artist accomplishes this by depicting brutally deformed human figures torn into pieces; at the same time the canvasses are maintained in cold, blue-green, cadaver-like hues. Around this period the artist produced other paintings in which he used the symbolism of blue as denoting non-materiality (Syn i zabita matka / Son and Dead Mother, Matka z zabitym synem / Mother and Dead Son, Zabity maz / Dead Husband).
