This exhibition is a presentation of works by three artists: Professor Grzegorz Dobiesław Mazurek, Marek Letkiewicz DSc and Lech Mazurek PhD, lecturers at the Faculty of Arts of Maria Curie-Sklodowska University in Lublin, Poland.
The ideas they followed when completing this exhibition of modern art were the timeless concepts contained in the book Sur le Colors, the title of which we refer to, written by the seventeenth-century painter Roger de Piles Dialoge.
The importance of colour in emphasizing the tension between light and darkness in Rubens’ paintings, raised in this work, is the most basic and universal problem of human perception of the surrounding world’s images. These relations play an extremely important role in processing and interpretation of reality, which this exhibition tries to show by presenting three different approaches to this key problem.
