"The birthday cake painting is for my 10th birthday.  I remember as today, the feeling of importance and adulthood.  I thought then that I already know a lot about life and that my parents are often wrong, which of course was nonsense. It felt like my childhood just finished. My brother organized a birthday for me, I invited a dozen kids and he organized competitions play .  I won, although I know my brother was bending the results.  I knew it was a cheat, but the desire to win was much stronger. I explained myself that this is how adults behave anyway."

"The painting "Hidden under the jacket" shows the cover of the first gay magazine I bought when I was 17. To this day I remember the stress associated with it, gathering for it for weeks, and the gaze of a saleswoman in a sex shop, judging and contemptuously when she found out what I was here for.  I remember those first pages and photos and the beating of my heart."

Each artwork in the series is directly linked to a story from the artist's life and childhood. Color, brushstroke and texture of the paintings play an important role in capturing the impressions. In impasto paintings, Bartosz Kolata relives his youth and shares intimate moments of growing up and the associated feelings of excitement and joy, but also of loneliness and fear.

Melodies is a series of new paintings inspired by our relationship with the surrounding world and our escape from it.  I am not looking for peace in paintings, there is no existential recipe for how to live or die. They talk about existence, music, growing up, breathing, metaphysics and poetic everyday life and refer to the period of childhood and adolescence, which strengthen today's view of the surrounding reality. They are trying to keep me from forgetting.

—Bartosz Kolata—

 

Memories, feelings and experiences from the artist's life characterize the paintings in this exhibition by Bartosz Kolata. Each artwork in the series is directly linked to a story from the artist's life and childhood. Color, brushstroke and texture of the paintings play an important role in capturing the impressions. In impasto paintings, Bartosz Kolata relives his youth and shares intimate moments of growing up and the associated feelings of excitement and joy, but also of loneliness and fear. Holidays with the family, the first visit to the opera and birthdays are shown just as well as the first kiss and the discovery of his own sexuality as a teenager. For example, "Adult finally" shows the birthday cake from his tenth birthday, when Bartosz Kolata's brother organized him a birthday party with games, which he only won because the brother faked the results. "Kiss in the garden of roses" depicts the rose garden Bartosz Kolata imagined when he had his first kiss with a girl from his neighborhood. "Hidden under the jacket", on the other hand, shows the cover of the first gay magazine the artist ever bought. In this way, the totality of the paintings results in a sort of diary of moments, encounters, disappointments and joys of the maturing artist.

 

With this exhibition, we are showing Bartosz Kolata for the first time in our gallery.
