A meditation on looking into our own lives and selves while we gaze out at the world around us, this piece speaks to the need to look at the seemingly ordinary or unsavory or ugly with greater benevolence.
I am originally from Warsaw, Poland. I have called Northern Virginia home for the last 40 years. Until my retirement in 2014, I employed my engineering and naval architecture training in building ships and other seafaring vessels in every corner of the world. My artistic influences range from the stunning fractals found in nature to the bold work of abstract art pioneer Vasily Kandinsky. I primarily use cardboard, plaster, and acrylics to create multi-layered wall sculptures and paintings. At times I branch out from my predominantly abstract, monochromatic work to create scenes and vignettes inspired by my own travels and by my grandchildren’s many interests. Large-scale installations of my assemblage work can be found in both residential and commercial settings.
