About his work
Sławomir Brzoska is situated in the traditions of constructivism, minimalism, neo-symbolism and the new geometry. He sees himself as an interpreter who endeavours to decode what lies hidden behind things, founded in their relationship to nature and in an interaction with space. Taoism, Zen and the pre-Socratics as well as the philosophy and literature of the 20th century and the present inspire his thought.
Sławomir Brzoska seeks the physical experience of the self and the world and has wandered across secluded territories (e.g. Papua), studying archaic societies and meeting their peoples: "Year of wandering life" 2007/08.
