Slawek J. Wisniewski- Steven De-Saas
Polish born /1959/, american artist, living in Southern California, Los Angeles area.
M.D. Diploma from Poland, however always involved in creative arts mostly presented as oil painting on canvas. First shows in 1980-s ,Honorata Gallery -Lodz-/Poland/. Member-Zwiazek Artystow Plastykow Rzeczypospolitej Polskiej- /Poland/
Succesfully showed his art in ARSG Art Rental and Sales Gallery-Los Angeles County Museum of Art and affiliated with this gallery for five years. In later years, showing works in galleries of L.A. area. Then for few years working with group of NOHO-artists called EVA. Painting mostly surrealism, trompe l'oeil still lifes and now working on series of paintings showing expressions of Los Angeles.
In years 2012 to 2014 I was working on series of paintings that show the escape from technical reproduction of reality.The major factor triggering conceptions of the series was City of Los Angeles, with many variations of the meaning. The plan was to make invisible to be seen, bringing the unconscious process as far as possible.
The colors in my paintings are treated as translation of the feelings, the intentional illusion in my interpretation of the city. There are also added some lines of poetry as a semantic unavoidable part to fulfill the expressions. I like to show on canvas the emotional part in reception of Los Angeles.
At present time since 2021 -I am working on series of paintings with use of original Yves Klein Blue (International Klein Blue) color./Bleu Outremer 1311/
In new works I use also scribbles, as automatic form , intuitive and emotional ,non-linguistic visual signs to display reference to landscape or semiotic expression of thoughts. There are also some lines of poetry chosen from Rainer M. Rilke written across the paintings.
In May 2023 work included (Malibu- oil on canvas) in Art Show of Zwiazek Artystow Plastykow Rzeczypospolitej Polskiej in Poland.
