Lukasz Wodynski

I’ve been staring at Lukasz Wodynski’s Human Light series, admiring his brilliant use of color. The glow he achieves in these flares of luminosity is rather lovely, isn’t it?

I also find Machinations of Dementia quite moving. Obscured faces manage to convey desperation and sadness…

  1. This strikes a chord with me. Quite like if Jackson Pollack’s “mess of paint” actually made sense (sorry to Pollack lovers). Here, perhaps we’re seeing the toxic aura colors of pain and suffering; the horrible insufferable disillusions of mental and/or psychical anguish that brings us to embrace death as an angel of mercy.

  2. Ah, I had to catch my breath viewing these. They also strike a chord with me (which I’m not quite prepared to vocalise right now). Visceral, agonising, yet totally enraptured. -Nx

    P.S., KEric, I confess I’m a Jackson Pollock lover – but I totally get what you’re saying about the ‘mess’ (perhaps ‘anguish’ though…?) of paint he creates!

    (Such an amazing, fascinating dialog Dana’s posts always set in motion, don’t they…?)

  3. Huh. I don’t get anguish…
    I get a sense of honest vulnerably.
    Especially since all the subjects appear to be men.
    It’s like they’re literally painting their-selves with their insides.
    AKA wearing their emotions.

      This is one reason why I love these paintings. Everyone sees a unique vision of them! Honest vulnerability is certainly almost palpable in this work.

  5. Thank you Dana.

    And yep, that means an awful lot to me too! -Nx
