Organic abstraction and fascination with light
Statement from the artist:
I like to watch the world, and our world is deeply organic and strongly abstract at the same time, and the light brings light to what we see. The cognition of our world goes via organic perception and abstract reflection, thus my art is organic abstraction enlightened with light.

Some words about the paintings by poet and art reviewer Piotr Groblinski:
"The structural line: Strzemiński - Fijałkowski - Bigoszewski is interlaced with organic, secessionist thread of personal yarn.
A canvas prepared in such way is then batik dyed with inks of moods, placed in frames of viewed expositions and embroidered with chaste, pastel themes. Everything is embellished with acrylic glaze.
Complex technique enables the artist to plan details in several layers, yet forcing to view pictures from different angles.
Because the light is the director displacing the emphases... But who is the director of light?"
