Bats and Other Tatra Fantasies. The Paintings of Irena Trzetrzewińska




June 7 - July 13, 2008
The Władysław Hasior Gallery
ul. Jagiellońska 18 b, Zakopane


Around 40 oil paintings of contemporary Krakow artist Irena Trzetrzewińska are on display at the Władysław Hasior Gallery. They reflect the artist's fascination for the Tatra mountains and legends of the region.


"[...] The author of these small oil paintings relies on her craft and her impressions for inspiration. She uses delicate smudges of painted colour and their outlines and interpenetrating layers to give an artistic impression of mountain landscapes. The large rocks, sparkling light and vastness of the sky and clouds create an impressive natural spectacle, full of dramatic contrasts. The mountain panoramas are full of dramatic energy and interest. We not only see recurrring motifs of eternal themes, but are reminded of the intense romantic aura surrounding the grandeur of mountain landscapes." (J. Buszyński, Irena Trzetrzewińska - Paintings, exhibition catalogue, Katowice 1969)

Irena Trzetrzewińska graduated from the Krakow Academy of Fine Arts and has lived in Krakow ever since. Her artworks have been presented at 19 individual and 90 collective exhibitions in Poland and abroad. The artist's paintings can be found in the National Museum in Krakow, the Modern Art Museum in Radom, the Archdiocesan Museum in Warsaw, the Castle Museum in Niedzica, the Tatra Museum in Zakopane and in various private Polish and foreign collections. She has been awarded many prizes.
