Jarek Puczel

Born in 1965, Jarek Puczel graduated from the University of Warsaw and has gained his multidisciplinary
artistic experience as a filmmaker, graphic designer and painter.

He tries to connect representation and concept. His artistic research starts from the idea of life conceived
as an illusion, and the world seen as a place where different realities are mixed together.

"Jarek Puczel catches the calmness of apparently simple and unspectacular situations with an impressive
modesty and apparent ease. He creates an interesting and tense moment, which we can neither escape
nor interpret appropriately. The reduced, yet still expressive colors in his compositions create an outstanding
clarity that seems less disturbing than it has a soothing and allaying effect on the viewer. He explores
the empty silence of different situations and reduces the image to the most essential details, thus forcing
us to read between the lines and let ourselves dive into the situation depicted".  (ignant.de)
