A word by the artist
Tadeusz Machowski really can surprise everybody! What makes his painting so different? It's bright, daring, and catchy. Powerful and impressive. It combines features that normally don't match - strength of personality and tenderness of emotions, hidden sarcasm and appealing sincerity... Machowski's pictures are easy recognizable - and have remarkable long-lasting aftertaste! Enjoy!
Why does the artist have to explain his works? The painting has to defend itself or not. Someone will either accept it or reject it. There is no rational reception of art. Reception of art is rather emotional.
My style grows from the legacy of abstract expressionism and the post-World War II American art movements, and through the decades of studying the masters’ techniques and transforming them to fit my own artistic sensibility, I hope, I have become their humble successor.
For me, painting is a never-ending experiment and a quest for more direct ways of expressing feelings and communicating with the world around me on a purely emotional level.
When I give away a painting, I give away a piece of myself along with hours of endeavours and frustration dashed with moments of incredible joy.
I believe in an instant reaction of the viewers to my works. The audience may adore them of hate them but it should never pass them indifferently.
