INTERlacing: Oskar Gorzkiewicz, Tomasz Matczak, Alicja Habisiak-Matczak, Witold Warzywoda and Jolanta Rudzka Habisiak. Headbones Gallery is proud to host this exhibition of artists whom have just arrived from the Strezminski Academy of Fine Art in Lodz, Poland.   

Canada and Poland have had a longstanding and fortuitous relationship as we discovered through both the academy and the Canadian embassy in Poland.  INTERlacing, distills this cultural essence through a high caliber contemporary exhibition that dissolves the boundaries between countries to present a united front of excellence.

Oskar Gorzkiewicz links into an alternative culture couching his imagery in cityscapes. With a style that is reminiscent of tattoos or illustration, he uses a focused excessive detailing.

Tomasz Matczak also presents  a detailed surface where reference is gleaned through the title for the first impression is of a color field, atmospheric and layered. The perspective is vague and the dimensions of space infinitely possible.

With a strong architectonic structuring of the picture plane, Alicja Habisiak-Matczak creates urban-scapes that are utopian with futuristic promise but the allure seems shady, more an invitation for trouble than comfort.

 Works by Witold Warzywoda examine both natural and historical resources within a pop context. He has been head of the Studio of Lithographic Techniques since 2000 and is conversant with the beneficial interchange of international exposure.

 Jolanta Rudzka Habisiak’s practice has been rigorous with large scale installations in paper, silk and mixed media that can occupy immense museum galleries. By using multiple elements, she establishes a large area of influence with an aesthetic of beauty so that order, harmony and balance over-takes the chaos of modern living. 

The public opening reception for INTERlacing is on Saturday June 16 from 2 – 5 PM with Oscar Gorzkiewicz, Tomasz Matczak, Alicja Habisiak-Matczak and Jolanta Rudzka Habisiak in attendance for a summertime Royal High Tea with our visiting art dignitaries from Poland.
