ANDRZEJ I JERZY GŁUSZEK - SYNCHRONICITIES II

Opening: Tuesday, January 3, 2017, 7pm


Exhibition of works by twin brothers whose painting - despite the use of completely different means of expression - in a way reveals some common features of their creators. Andrzej is an abstractionist, paints large multi-coloured images; Jerzy's works are smaller, depicting, often figurative, poetic, slightly surrealist. In Andrzej's works one can find musical inspiration, in Jerzy's- literary. Andrew paints acrylic on canvas, Jerzy - distemper and pastel on paper. Both are fascinated by colour, they subtly compile unusual shades of blues, pinks, greys.

Both brothers were strongly involved in Wroclaw counterculture  of the 80s, they contributed to the first happenings of the  Orange Alternative, performances, alternative magazines e.g. "Luxus".
