BIOGRAPHY & ARTISTIC PROCESS
Born on 03 July 1973 in Metz, Lepolsk Matuszewski is passionate about the Drawing since the age of 6. The design is already a passion since 1979 and spends most of his childhood drawing and hand paint. The First action painting artwork was paint in1979 .
It follows a classical school since first grade until college.
It takes the path of vocational school, urged by his teachers for an art school sector.
Passionate about the image and the emotions it conveys, he studied in the illustration, creation of schools advertising graphics and applied art admitted to the entrance in the professional technical school St. Vincent.
Anchored to the world of image, he decided to make a photography school and studies audio-visuel.A all these different facets of art, the artist adds a few tests to sculpture and art.
In 1989, Matuszewski Lepolsk can be guided by its creator destiny, and produces a series of biographical sketches that self-titled "bonhommes! The bonshommes are self-portraits made out in a school, but they played a very important role in the future. The drawings are "hybrid" combining a mixture of techniques (inks, pigments and blood) and materials (plastic films used in photogravure, and stuck against special papers to felted Graphs).
The colors "hot" have similar atmosphere "cold", forms and prints begin to révélerdans a spirit of comic plank.
In 1990, The thoughts of Lepolsk starting to become very figurative: in the form of bubbles (comics) in the work of the funds, and the colors ... The musical and literary influences such as The Cure and Edgar A. Poe are body with achievements. Follows a stubborn Research mixtures of pigments and materials needed for its plastic creations!
In 1992 with the series of paintings entitled the "MIRRORS" ...
Lepolsk MATUSZEWSKI staged his story combining fiction and reality.
"Mirror" tells several paintings in the life of the artist. These paintings are akin to a bare brain, whose form is the favorite theme of the painter.
It seeks to translate various moods in the colors of the earth. This reconciliation with nature is an essential element of this exhibition.
The materials and techniques used are the least "unprecedented".
The mixture of materials such as sand, gold, sea salt, wax, fragments of volcanic rock, copper, zinc & clay pigments added to give a very special works, where moods Cold and warm colors reveal a surprising contrast.
Meanwhile, it conducts research on the artistic image and its ability to transform the unreal.
A kind of self that presents the abstract reflections of the different visions of the author on himself. "
These creations, however, expressed on the substance and form a slight esoteric nature.
Lepolsk Matuszewski is nicknamed by the press: the painter of shadows and lights. These paintings are visual metaphors that shock the sensitivity of the viewer.
The real work on the psyche, stirring deep thoughts and a tendency to "repay the definition of abstract art."
The Art innabstrait "(a term that defines the work of asylum-art creation, a group of painters) would be the most appropriate term for this exhibition ... The forms, lines strong and kept the essential structures of a landscape or object no longer exist.
Lepolsk Matuszewski freely gives us visions of his thoughts.
A work contains many and invites the viewer to discover mechanism is by pictorial reliefs, depending on the investment over the table.
In 1999, the second theme "ASYLUM"
Series "Asylum" is as a result of "Mirror" ... Even more successful, deeper, more technical research on materials and this time working on larger sizes of tables.
Items such as sand, clay, gold and copper are still present.
Asylum is a form of "psychological homology * (* term advertising which means an image in an image, which is repeated so redundant) ... hidden by the colors and graphic balance.
The relief materials represent forms, faces, characters and scenes only visible under the direction of light to the canvas by shadow effect or function of various investments over the visitor table.
Lepolsk working on his paintings by using artificial lights painted it ... preferably at night!
According to the orientation of these light sources, the reliefs take dimensions and colors are very special.
It is very difficult to take photographs of these paintings, because every angle differs according to relief painting and the placement of the goal ... a small tip of the painter, who offers this special touch to his work .
In 2006, a third theme "IGNIS ANIMA"
The INNABSTRAIT or "how to make his dream metaphor of its reality ?"...
"Organizing the emotion thoughts by metaphor, freeze the moment of birth, the essence, by ordering them so they appear even more confusing ..."
The texts are writing by author and composer Fabien Matuszewski, writer
"My paintings reflect my thoughts, my dreams and my intuition that I have appointed the innabstrait. My paintings are visual metaphors hitting the sensitivity of each! A table containing several depending on the placement of the spectator and the effects of light relief ... I always leave in the composition of my paintings chart a vision for the viewer so that it takes place and put in a situation with the artwork becomes subjective!
The techniques used are shall incorporate mixed materials by mixtures such as sand, clay, copper, gold, earth, stone chips etc. ...
I attach great importance to incorporate natural materials to make my paintings.
Finally, the themes that I myself have guided me in my artistic process, not wishing to have any affiliation to a movement of art recognized or defined, my motto is "freedom, intuitive thinking when I paint "
Definition of my innabstrait
Artistic expression created in 1992 by Art Asylum-creations (a group of painters), based on the representation and iconographic distortion (forms or other representations of ethics) expressing feelings and emotions unreal and dreamlike. The structures of compositions funds are borrowed from the gestural painting and action painting (G. Mathieu _ J.Pollock). For the technical part, works sometimes or diptychs polyptychs graphically balanced by lights and shadows using natural materials and fragments .
IN 2009...THE REVELATION : THE PROTOTYPES
_ "Light or more precisely," lights ", perspectives, colors, shapes and materials have found a different way to express themselves and be!
Also my desire to "push the dripping and tubbing to another dimension pictorial" in my work is certainly the source of this metamorphosis. The need to go to the basics, use the most natural way while retaining the spirit of deconstruction elements that drives me.
Who said dimension, said space ... Involving the creation of a work like dimensional sculpture. For now, I want to keep the support of departure: the frame and the canvas. Some designs are already done with the front and back.
Time has an important place in my work, find himself with tables. They represent the beginning and end at the same time: the look of the table.
I love the material. My sculpture and my painting found there, a shared universe in which I learn and feel artistically free with the only reference my imagination. '
