Presence

Portraiture is significant in its persistent recurrence throughout my work. It comes back as a semi-abstract portrait or only as an indication of a story about a person. The body of works presented here appears the most complete and perhaps the most direct in this matter. It is based on my strong experience of emigration at the time of thousands of Polish citizens settling in the United Kingdom. The works were created while questioning my sense of belonging, cultural and personal history as well as while thinking about a story telling.
