Born in Warsaw, Poland, in 1951, Wlodzimierz Ksiazek emigrated to the United States in the early 1980s, and became a permanent resident in 1988. Propelled by his remarkable energy, he has become part of a community of gifted visual artists, poets, and critics who work within the Boston to New York megalopolis.
The commanding presence of Ksiazek's work, created by the unexpected "collision" of the immediacy and almost raw physicality of the works and their air of subtle melancholy hanging over these brilliantly colored paintings, is striking. His work expresses both violation and freedom, which as an artistic strategy gives his work its extraordinary power. The interplay of gestures and marks underscores a sense of perpetual banishment and alienation and in the act of painting, Ksiazek carves out a territory that is both symbolic and real.
Kouros Gallery has published a full color catalogue, with an essay by David Pagel, on the occasion of the artist's 2002 exhibition.
