Andrzej Mazur is an exciting artist who has come into his own in the Irish art scene in recent years. Born and educated in Poland, this graphic artist has held many successful exhibitions throughout Ireland since 2002. As a member of the Dublin Graphic Studio he’s well known for his prints and recently exhibited with at the RUA Annual Exhibition in Belfast. In this exhibition we can discover him as a painter.
His works and research explore conceptual relations between cognitive processes, languages and cultures. The very choice of the subject, the gesture, the motif disclosed a predesposition to a related interpretation of the world, access to similar layers of the absurd, and referencs to objects recorded in the history of symbols. Define concepts, sings and symbols engaged in the insane dance of associations.
„Human form is the dominant element in my art. I this way, my work simultaneously gains unique humanistic and existential aspect. The heroes of my paintings are flesh and blood figures tangled in a web of various dependencies and constraints, which have their origins both in human relations, as well as those resulting from the internal experiences and dilemmas of the people in each composition. I rarely introduces crowd of characters. The composition is usually limited to one person, sometimes two. They are usually places in a confined space, even if it is obviously a landscape scene, which merges with the figure, blends with it and passes through. My painted human figures are organically linked with the place in which they are presented. This allow me to suggest a direct relationship that is not just physical, but is above all a mental relationship between individual characters and their surroundings.”
