Art Gallery at Collin College To Host Figurative Abstract Painter Bartosz Beda Solo Exhibition
Bartosz Beda's "Echoes of Seasons" solo exhibition will be hosted by the Art Gallery at Collin College in early Fall of 2023. The "Echoes of Seasons" collection features large scale paintings in vibrant colors that incorporate the symbolic framework of the four seasons to thematically explore the human experience and invite viewers to peer through "painted windows" into the intricate tapestry of inner migration. Beda employs a metaphorical lens akin to Sigmund Freud’s intricate layers of the human psyche to reveal "windows into our collective human nature" and "unveil the intricate and multifaceted migration seasons". This exploration also encompasses the emotional, psychological, and spiritual transitions that shape the cycle of human live.
Bartosz paints in layers while partially obfuscating and concealing his subjects. His paintings often elicit an unexpected emotional response as the viewer is compelled to interpret the hidden and distorted portions. There seems to be a strange psychological engagement that many feel when viewing his work. As the mind tries to imagine and fill in the hidden portions of the subjects it also begins to interpret or synthesize their personalities and emotional states. To the viewer the process often seems as if the hidden areas are somehow revealed as they actually are, buried beneath the layers of brushstrokes. Beda is best known for his "figurative abstract" and multilayered painting style. His works are held by museums and in private collections around the world.
"I’m delighted to share the unveiling of my solo exhibition, Echoes of Seasons, hosted within the museum-like art gallery space in Plano, TX. With great anticipation, I present an exhibition of new paintings that encapsulate my artistic vision.This exhibition culminates my endeavor to harmoniously blend abstraction and figuration, developing a captivating union where neither element overshadows the other. Through my artwork, I explore the human experience, inviting viewers to peer through these painted windows into the intricate tapestry of inner migration. These paintings, positioned as windows into our collective human nature, unveil the intricate and multifaceted migration seasons. Not confined to physical translocation, this exploration also encompasses the emotional, psychological, and spiritual transitions that shape our lives," says Bartosz Beda regarding his September 29 though October 26 solo exhibition show in Plano, Texas at the The Art Gallery 2800 E. Spring Creek Parkway.
