Hand Action Paintings
Micro times of feeling, images created faster than I could see, winter and spring 1980
by Wiesław Sadurski
The painting likes when the painter is in an extreme state.
It does not matter to him: despair or ecstasy, the sign "+" or "-".
'Bad' is even better; suffering is far from harmony, pressure is increasing,
the painting likes it very much.
For him, everything depends on the intensity, temperature,
and not on the painter whom he uses like a brush.
Yes, but a painter?
Painter flies from the pole of individuality, in isolation from the universe, in despair and pain,
to the pole of universality, to the reality greater than truth.
Between the two poles sometimes one must stand astride.
So my working conditions are perfect, maximum overload.
Few years later I painted
signs of being on the black of the unknown,
Furious joy and loads of papers hung daily to dry on the ceiling this winter and spring.
The practical aspects of the work quickly showed up on the skin of my hands. A bit damaged. And watercolors have run out.
I used varnish + spray + enamel + printing inks on papers, working with a paint knife and a silent frenzy
to see new paintings emerging out of the blue ... Knife Story ...
