Colours of the eyes II, 2023

Grzybacz’s paintings detail a world both familiar and alien. Deconstructed figures are central to the compositions and are presented as mechanical devices or bustling manufactories. Grzybacz culls imagery from a heap of drawings, performing each work in a feverish 24 to 72 hour stretch, during which the canvas is covered with paint and then 'mopped up' with sponges and brushes. Grzybacz grew up in the countryside outside Krakow, where he now lives, and counts as early inspiration the works of his father, once a painter, and the broadcasts of Polish national television.
