by Krzysztof Musiał
The situation depicted in the painting seems thoroughly ordinary, as it depicts two people – one shopping, the other running. The focal point (the largest) appears to be the basket held by the person in the foreground. After a while, however, it speaks to the viewer with a depth embedded in everyday life and the simplest things we do. By reaching out to such situations, the painter convinces the viewer of the profound significance of these things. After all, they are a large part of our lives.
The use of a narrow colour palette emphasises the subject of the painting and completes the entire composition. It also highlights the artist’s way of thinking about the everyday. The lack of visible faces is also significant – indicative of a pluralistic experience of everyday life.
Krzysztof Musiał born in Słubice, Poland. Graduate of the WSSS in Poznań in 2001. Obtained a diploma with honours in Painting under Prof. J. Świtka and an annex in Wall Painting under Prof. M. Łubowski. In addition, 2003 graduate of the Faculty of Artistic Education at the Academy of Fine Arts in Poznań. He works as an instructor of drawing and painting at MDK No 2 in Poznań. He has also taught painting at Collegium Da Vinci in Poznań. Participated in more than a few dozen individual and collective exhibitions.
His painting centres around capturing the reality that is next to each of us. He devotes his attention to relationships, to accidental situations which at first glance are insignificant, but which ultimately turn out to be interesting and can say a lot about the human condition in the contemporary world. Musiał focuses on the moments that fill life, which we pass by indifferently.
