About Piotr Wolodkowicz
As a Polish born, yet American raised artist, I have a unique perspective that I incorporate into my work. Traveling the world has broadened and yet fined tuned the style of my brush. My art reflects my experiences and feelings. While painting and reflecting on life, I find a desire to show the places and the people that have influenced my understanding of the world. The mysticism of the people, and the uniqueness and depth of the visions are painted in a visually tantalizing fashion. My new series is called Portrait of Trees. The paintings presented are my representation of trees. When I was young I remember laying on the grass looking up on the sky through tree branches and at the sky. Seeing the abstract shapes the tree branches and clouds created. As I got older I learned about the oxygen and other products the trees provide that are needed and used every second of our lives. Later I learned about the abuses and how the trees get cleared in the Amazon and different parts of the world. This series is a homage to the wonderful and magnificent presence of trees in our daily lives.
Piotr's artwork has been exhibited in a number of Chicago galleries and most recently in Germany.
