Leon Tarasewicz is an artist for whom the exhibition space of a work of art is as important as the work itself. The integral combination of painterly expressions on canvas is merely an allusive starting point to the world surrounding the artist.
Nature, which is so close to Tarasewicz - at first being the main subject of his works - is made to open up to him the world of colours and the contrasts present in them, in order to start a dialogue on the condition of contemporary reality in a highly original and courageous manner.
The monumental paintings draw attention to the transience of moments of reverie and reflection, which are easiest to come by when surrounded by pristine nature, so rare in the urban landscape.
In what is apparently seen as metaphysical by means of the play of sharp colours, texture and light, Tarasewicz emphasises that an image is nothing more than an image, and that its development should be sought in a space coherent with nature.
