Explanation of the painting “Looking at the name-day at E”, 2007.
A fragment of the image, the upper part, the middle.
The central part of the image, fragment.
The sketch was made directly during the observed event, in the presence of E. and Z. and other organisms, objects and things that caused an influence on the overall composition and shape of the image. The letters marked in the sketch are omitted as a result of shifting the resulting image. A series of events from the moment the image was created to the final effect caused changes that were carried out twice. During the creative process, Mr. P. was introduced as an observer, why? It seems that the outcome of the decision would be to experience the impact of external reality. The influences that often have accidental sensations on us have their effect in the creative process. The continuous flow of images leaves traces in consciousness, the effect of which are subsequent creative decisions. The resulting from the flowing images probably draws so-called. intuition, but not entirely. Your contribution to intuitive creation also has what has been in us for a long time, i.e. the genesis of our formation. The involvement of intuition is quite difficult to be traced in each created image is a percentage different, and it all depends on the awareness of the attitude of own “I” to draw from its decks. To sum up, the picture in general character is a direct record of reality, it should be emphasized here the word “direct”, because it is a rarely used form due to the circumstances in which we come to stay, the more so that in fact there are also other direct shareholders of the image and having an impact on ourselves.

In December you could visit the exhibition of an exceptional and unique artist, not defined by any artistic tradition. In an individual exhibition Jerzy Ruszczyński exhibited 47 of his paintings at the Center for Culture and Tourism in Mrągowo.
Jerzy Ruszczyński: “The desire to discover the connection between what we do and the reality that engulfs us is a fundamental issue that has its beginning in the question:
how does our mind work, for what and why?
These questions presented in graphic form are to give us an answer to issues related to existence here and now. What will happen next, and also what was before us, we write here and now through a record of cause and effect reactions which, I think, connect us past and future. I do so with the hope of deepening the knowledge about our mind. Most of the experiments can be carried out on your mind by producing graphic forms in real images, in which individual forms coexisting with each other represent a reactionary action, that is, such as occur in the mind during the implementation of real images. Real images are fragments of reality taken from the mind and the space around us.
The external space in connection with our mind gives us the image of a complex action, and as a result of this action a graphic image is created.
Ultimately, the drama of such action consists in limiting us through our inevitable connection with what was before us and what will happen to us. This ghoulish binding is all the more disturbing because we are unable to free ourselves from this relationship with reality and we are not able to separate us from what was before us and what will be after.
The comforting fact in our existence is the ability to learn, explore and study the enormous resources given to us by reality.
Remember about the motto recorded after the exhibition: “We have to realize one basic thing that we are not us, that we are not literally ourselves. We are the result of creating us in here and now. We have behind us a whole range of accidents that have led us to the present moment and we are only a link in the chain linking us with the future … ”
The new web site of Polish artist Jerzy Ruszczyński has just been created.
