“They are things known and there are things unknown, and in between are the doors of perception.”

Aldous Huxley

STATEMENT

“Metamorphosis – the In Between” by Konrad Pawlaszek


A series of contemporary paintings presenting my current view of my surroundings and circumstances, reflecting on 13 years of my life lived in Northern Ireland.

Expressing a Love of nature, catalysed by a movement away from human and social interaction as a focus point, due to an increasingly hostile social climate and politically divisive situation here.

Due to this increasingly hostile culture and narrowing worldview, my work represents a trip to the “other”; invisible worlds in my imagination, yet still connected with my reality.  You can never separate yourself fully from the real world.

Our vision is impaired by barriers we teach ourselves, obscuring different aspects and experiences in favour of the routine, the expected, the learned viewpoint.  With this collection, I have tried to catch my moments, thoughts and reflections unfiltered, and to inspire the viewers’ imagination and stretch their perceptions.

Mankind has always chased the limits of perception and altering of the mind to explain their situation, and accept their place in the world; be it through spiritual, meditative or hedonistic means. I have used these pieces to reconnect in a world that increasingly strips the humanity or individualism from life.

Thank you for listening.
