Shyness Silence - New Exhibition @ Riverbank

A solo exhibition of mixed media print works, by Andrzej Mazur

Shyness-Silence Riverbank Arts Centre, Newbridge, Co. Kildare presents ‘Shyness Silence’ – an exhibition of new and recent works by emerging artist Andrzej Mazur.  Since moving to Ireland from Poland, Andrzej has exhibited extensively in Dublin.  This will be his first solo exhibition in Kildare. 

Andrzej Mazur is a member of the Graphic Studio, Dublin and has being working in print since 2000.  He holds a BA and MA in fine art from the University of Maria Curie Sklodowska in Lublin, Poland. 

The works presented here are like puzzles and windows to another world.  While drawing inspiration from the works of the masters, Albrect Durer and Hendrick Goltzius, Andrzej has managed to create intriguing and stimulating highly skilled and executed images.  These works are studies of the human being and all the complexities of human relationships and communication.    

Andrzej Mazur’s statement:        

“The common feature of my work is mystery. Both for viewers who try to decode meanings of the whole picture or any part of it, and for me. My works and research explore conceptual relations between cognitive processes, languages and cultures. The very choice of the subject, the gesture, the motif disclose a predisposition to a related interpretation of the world, access to similar layers of the absurd and references to objects recorded in the history of symbols, signs and associations”.

The exhibition opens on Thursday, 21st January at 6.30pm with Andrzej giving a demonstration on how he uses paint in his print works.  The exhibition runs until 14th February in the McKenna Gallery, admission is free and the gallery is open 10am to 5.30pm, Monday to Friday and 10am to 1pm on Saturday.  See for details.
