Kajetan
Sosnowski

Kajetan Sosnowski's work is distinguished by his experimentation with form and painting matter, which was undoubtedly influenced by his interest in the sciences. Light and color - how their relationship could be different in a painting are the main subject of his works and the painting philosophy he practiced. In the late 1950s, abstract forms began to appear on the canvases he painted, which then gave way to the material qualities of the painting itself.

In his works he draws attention to the relationship between art and nature. It is in it - art that he seeks the truth about the world, which only science can discover. He shows how natural physical and chemical processes can enrich the act of preperception of a given image.
