Last Sunday I had a vernissage of my exhibition at the Polish Library in Amsterdam at Keizersgracht 174. Actually, the first time I decided to tell my audience about my art, I’m sorry, the second time. I spoke for the first time four years ago at Leeszaal West in Rotterdam. Anyway, it was the first time I did it with great pleasure, relaxed and passed, what I wanted to convey. I think I’ve just matured to such presentations. I owe this special evening to the public – friends and strangers who came to see what I did. Ania, my friend and translator, translated every sentence from Polish to Dutch so that everyone could understand what I’m talking about.
Interestingly, probably nobody took pictures, I also forgot about them. In times when every step is documented, it is amazing. Everyone sat and just listened. Maybe I saw one person with a phone that tried something, but I do not even know who it was. Does not matter. I will remember this evening because of its atmosphere and delightful meeting.
The second interesting thing is that for the purposes of the exhibition I pulled Lady Kangaroo out of the closet. In fact, I have already finished this project, but the exhibition made me realize that it is the LADY that has more potential than my current graphics. What I do now is quite heavy in reception. People, however, like light, bright, joyous art. I also felt a lot easier when I looked at all the crazy, unusual, colorful linocuts with Lady Kangaroo.
