Last weeks I was working on my new painting «Olympia’s weekend».
It is homage to Manet’s «Olympia» famous painting, but also to amazing moving sculpture by Paul Spooner. I saw it a few years ago in automata’s exhibition, and was absolutely charmed. The black lady became an egyptian god Anubis, and you can see how annoyed Olympia is breathing heavily, but shows no attention to him.
Olympia by Paul Spooner.
This is the oryginal Olympia by Manet, (c. 1863):

what is interesting about this work, is that the fox first was supposed to be a cat:

Just finished a new work. I am about to close my TAMED MONSTERS series, and will have a 3-days solo event, hopefully, in the late August. This time I organize everything myself. I should find a place, make the invitations, take care of PR, drinks and many other stuff, including a playlist of the music. It is scary, but very exciting at the same time.

I just finished series of cutouts for exhibition of miniatures. My daughter is ill home, so we had some fun by photographing them in unexpected locations.

People very rarely ask me «what this work of yours means?». It’s a good thing, because I don’t know what the work of mine they liked means for them. Often I have no idea, what it means even for myself. I just like to follow the process of creation, without knowing in advance what turns will it take and where will it stop… It can start really from anything and to go anywhere. I’ll show you.

The last month I just keep drawing dogs and more dogs.
Maybe it has something to do with our recently adopted friend Tobik. Tobik is so black, that when he moves in the middle of the night, it seems like a darkness itself is moving. And since I have black sofas, every time somebody else sits on Tobik by mistake and then we jump on, scared by his insulted shriek.
I didn’t plan to adopt a dog, but he was crying in the middle of the night near our house and I couldn’t sleep. I found him a good people who wanted to take him, but my daughter Michelle sworn, that she will take a good care of him and clean after him. Interesting, that I believed that, even though I had a dog when I was a child and I also promised my mom I’d take care of him, so I knew how would it be for real.
So here we are, me and Tobik, him sleeping near me and in between his sleep ruining the house and my shoes in particular, and me, drawing more and more dogs…
