Spectrals, Paintings of the Color Spectrum
Red Yellow Blue leading to higher reality
in Oil & Acrylic Paintings by Wiesław Sadurski.
Large painting use to have stretches strengthened by wooden cross behind.
The one above burnt through the canvas.
There was a state of war in Poland.
in a search for the meaning of life
art is in direct touch with everything else
it grows in the dark,
loves the unknown,
flies into light
1983, Kreuzberg, the series is called Spectrals.
In the spring, the paintings become brighter, and in summer I live again like an artist, that is, I paint all the time, dance at night in a disco, drink beer, smoke grass, sleep happy in the grass and the sun. There are also friendships, loves, madness farther away or closer.
The internal turmoil led me to the desire to concentrate on the simplest things; I limit my palette with joy to three basic colors and their mutual relations. In the past paintings were painted intuitively. Now the thought began to dominate - I wanted to know! - and then see the painting of my knowledge.
Paintings became conceptual, but at the same time the fact that I spend long time with the basic three colors: Red, Yellow and Blue, made me see in them a kind of Holy Trinity - in the everyday edition. The Trinity that creates the visible world from Light, which in the painterly way of perceiving the world is the Absolute, God.
The matter therefore concerns the Color Spectrum. In painting activity three basic colors quickly have intercources with each other, in a way, and children are born, created by combining the colors in pairs: yellow+red=orange, yellow+blue=green, red+blue=violet.
The joyful explosiveness of summer paintings = an intuitive announcement of what becomes for many years the basic painting motive.
