With a wonderful and soft flourish, lines turn into silhouettes, silhouettes turn into female bodies, sensual, pulsating, erotic. And at the same time, bodies turn into shapes, abstract and real at the same time. The transitions are fluid, similar to the fluid contours which build the female bodies.
Bartosz celebrates the beauty of the female body, the liveliness and the complexity of female nature. In that, classical shapes stand in the foreground, but they can’t be separated from the vision of human figures. The human figure always appears, no matter how abstract the pictures are. The same happens with the landscapes capturing the qualities of Australia in an equally sensual way.
