it flourishes in darkness, soars towards light
embraces the unknown, and liberates our spirits

Introducing Vision, Light and Creation: Core Concepts in the Life and My Work

Vision, Light, and Creation are fundamental ideas that play a vital role in my life and artistic endeavors. These concepts are both philosophical and enjoyable to explore, captivating people's interest throughout history. They have been studied by philosophers, scientists, and artists alike, as they are crucial to understanding the world around us.

Sight is one of our most important senses; it allows us to perceive information. Through our eyes, we appreciate the beauty of nature, read books, and watch movies. Without vision, we would be lost, both figuratively and literally. However, vision can be unreliable. My perception is subjective, influenced by factors such as prejudices, emotions, and physical limitations - like my current eyesight issues. In other words, what I see isn't always the true representation of reality, a lesson I just learn from personal experience.

VISION, as a tool of cognition, holds various meanings and offers insights into human nature and reality. It can provide revelations, manifest images for the physical eyes, or appear as powerful dreams, revelations, or supernatural manifestations. Thus, vision is an essential tool for understanding the world. However, my VISIONs don't frolic in the brain's bloody meadows or manifest in dream flights. They emerge from the matter of oils on primed canvas, in the presence of brushes, a palette, and a painter who doesn't visualize pictures in the mind but through the act of painting. What does love have to do with it?

LIGHT is a captivating phenomenon that has always intrigued people. It exhibits dual characteristics, being both a wave and a particle, and travels at a constant speed. Without light, we wouldn't be able to see, but its significance extends far beyond that. LIGHT is the source of existence and the foundation of life on Earth. Plants rely on light for photosynthesis, while animals use it to regulate their biological rhythms. Symbolizing hope, knowledge, and enlightenment, LIGHT serves as a profound inspiration for artists.

CREATION is the process of bringing something new into existence. From the inception of a work of art to the innovation of new technology, it propels humanity's progress and advancement. However, the act of creation doesn't always proceed smoothly. It can be frustrating and challenging at times, but the creative process itself is intrinsically rewarding. It enables me to develop my expression and imagination, providing a sense of purpose and occasional fulfillment. I am deeply grateful for the gift of CREATION, which allows me to experience the most delicate phenomena of light, matter, and color in my paintings.

So, the next time you witness a breathtaking sunset or create something unexpected, remember the philosophical and amusing aspects of these concepts, and appreciate the wonders of life with a hearty laugh!

My art, as a form of self-expression,

is deeply personal and reflective of my own experiences and emotions. At the same time, it serves as a conduit for connection and understanding, as viewers from different backgrounds can find meaning and resonance in the images and themes I explore.

Throughout my artistic journey, I have experimented with various styles, techniques, and mediums, constantly pushing boundaries and evolving as an artist. This drive for growth and transformation mirrors the ever-changing nature of life itself.

As an artist, my primary goal is to create works that evoke emotions and provoke thought, inviting viewers to embark on their own journey of self-discovery and contemplation. Whether my art elicits feelings of happiness, sadness, or something more profound, the aim is to engage the audience and provide them with a unique experience that transcends the mundane and the ordinary.

Ultimately, art serves as a reminder of the limitless potential of human creativity and imagination. It challenges us to look beyond the surface, to delve deeper into the complexities of life, and to find beauty and meaning in the most unexpected places. In a world where boundaries and divisions often seem insurmountable, art has the power to unite and inspire us all, providing a glimpse of the infinite possibilities that lie within each of us.

My passion for electronics was ignited at a child age when my grandfather brought back a crystal radio from one of his trips. It was a small glass sphere with a knob, a device strictly forbidden under the German occupation of Poland. A long copper wire spiraled from one end of it in the corner of the room, while the other end hung from an apple tree branch outside the open window at night.

My grandfather placed the headphones over my ears and showed me how to tune the radio using the dial. The glass sphere contained a crystal, and the knob's needle touched it delicately. As I adjusted the needle, I heard crackles and static until, suddenly, a human voice and unfamiliar sounds emerged. Handing the headphones back to my grandfather, he listened for a moment before informing me it was the BBC radio.

At the age of 12, I developed a fascination with radio engineering. By 14, I built a fully functional radio with a mesmerizing, glowing magic eye. However, finishing primary school early made it difficult for me to gain admission to any high school in socialist Poland. Fortunately, my brother-in-law, the director of the Energy Technical School, helped me secure a spot.

By the age of 17, I was an electrical technician, and a year later, I began working as a radio technician, repairing radios and more. In 1995, when I purchased my first computer, I initially intended to use it for transferring my prose from manuscripts. However, I stumbled upon a graphics program that came with the computer, and that's when my creative journey with digital art began.

Since that day, I have worked with numerous programs, tools, and filters, exploring the vast array of creative possibilities they offer. It's been a quarter of a century of enjoyment! All of my creative work is showcased on this website, which is a testament to my lifelong passion. Today, my enthusiasm for graphics, fractals, mandalas, 3-D, heart art, cosmic events, star people, birds, animals, monkeys, and portraits is as strong as ever.

The 22 pages on my website are filled with graphics, pictures, experiments, insights, discoveries, joy, and everything in between. Although it all boils down to pixels, photons, images, and yearnings, it feels as real to me as a slice of bread, and I'm thrilled to share it with you.

My journey in the realm of digital art has been filled with countless exciting moments, and I have come a long way since that first encounter with a crystal radio. It's a testament to the power of creativity and the endless possibilities that technology can offer to artists. As I continue to create, I'm eager to explore new techniques and ideas, always pushing the boundaries of what's possible in the world of visual arts.

From an early age, my curiosity and fascination with the natural world have fueled my artistic pursuits. The simple yet profound moment of witnessing a marigold flower melting the snow around it left a lasting impression on me, sparking my imagination and shaping my artistic vision.

Cover for ‘Końkut, który był Człowiekiem‘, poem by Wiesław Sadurski

It was a late evening, and the streets were empty. The snowflakes were falling in great flakes, gently and quietly. I found myself walking along Krakowskie Przedmieście in Lublin, composing my first poem. I had only 2.50 in my pocket for a night in a tourist hostel. As I lay on the top bunk bed, surrounded by the sounds of twenty other guys snoring, coughing, and groaning, I felt warm inside. The snowflakes from the white poem I had just composed were still melting on my lips.

That snowy evening 1957, I couldn't have known that the spark of poetry that ignited within me would become an integral part of my life's journey. During challenging days and nights of homelessness, poetry offered solace and comfort, helping me make sense of the world around me.

As my life progressed, poetry continued to be my steadfast companion. With the arrival of spring, my circumstances improved, and my new job as a radio technician provided me with financial stability. My love for poetry only grew stronger, and it became an essential part of who I was. It served as my shield against the hardships of life, including the looming prospect of military service.

By pursuing my studies in philosophy, I managed to avoid the draft and further enriched my life. Throughout my twenties, poetry took center stage in my life. My works were published in numerous magazines, and I received several awards in poetry competitions. I went on to publish five books of poetry in Polish, one volume in German, and two in English.

My passion for poetry not only helped me navigate through the challenges I faced but also opened doors to new opportunities and experiences. As I look back on my life, I am grateful for the role that poetry has played in shaping my personal and professional journey. It has been a source of inspiration, solace, and joy, providing me with the means to express my deepest thoughts and emotions. From that snowy evening in Lublin to the present day, poetry has remained a constant and treasured companion in my life.
