Budapest-based Polish artist comes back with eye-catching bright paintings on canvas or cardboard, which develop concepts presented in his latest projects dedicated to abstraction (“Black Crystals”, “Liquid spaces”, 2018 – “The New Alchemy”, 2019). In his artistic laboratory he applies wide variety of forms while testing new artistic situation on each single painting. Every piece provokes questions if it is just an esthetic joy of playing with abstraction or a complex depiction of a unique organized system. If we look closer, shapes, colors and shades compose in a sense objects and situations known from everyday life, while in contrary seem to depict chemical and biological processes. This enchanting game with a viewer and his vision benefits from various optical tricks, as much as from precise technique of the artist. While presented works are acrylic paintings, they convey us to the world of digital art thanks to the layering and characteristic interventions widely applied in graphic programs. In The New Alchemy series of paintings artist shows the digital creation process in reverse. Therefore latest pieces from Piars have deep focus on exploration process itself: artist is analyzing new models and testing them, as they belong to his imaginarium of new forms, he managed to create a specific alphabet and reorganize it in each piece. While he continues the artistic experiment with abstraction, a brand new dynamic process is depicted: with strong sensation of movement, visual intensity and bright colors. New microsystem closed in the frame of painting seems like a fusion of art and science. It reminds us how much the world of scientific metaphors borrows from arts.
