The prodigy of Łukasz Stokowski’s work has its source in the artist’s ability to go beyond clichés and conventional rules. In his case the desire to create is not subject to any limitations, not only academic, but also societal. The strength of his pieces stems from his immodesty, passion and courage, which drive not only Łukasz’s creativity, but also his life. The artist enjoys continued success, allows himself to flirt with commercial projects without compromising his authenticity
Łukasz is constantly on the move, perfecting his craft as well as enriching signification, experimenting with various techniques, his work is perfectly suited for spatial actions.
OUT OF FRAME is a coherent and mature attempt at capturing the dynamics of matter. Contrary to the apparent immobility of expression in painting, the artist has managed to represent an unconstrained movement of the universe. These paintings are tremorous, fluid, and the impression is intensified by an illusory economy with which the artist fills the space of his canvas. A stillness of the background is a reference point which makes possible an observation of the kinetic nature of matter.
Motion is not suspended in theses canvas, but keeps moving, breaks free onto an ideal substrate with a desire to take possession of space. Enclosing it within a space of a painting does not arrest it, but rather enables our marvelling at the eternal essence of the phenomenon.
