Leon Tarasewicz creates pictorial installations according to the specificities of the exhibition site. Pervading on grounds as well as on walls, Leon Tarasewicz painting always goes beyond the limits of the canvas in order to create pictorial landscapes with intense luminosity. Covering all the ground of the art center with plaster, the artist manages to create accidental that are then painted with vivid colors.
” The painting of Leon Tarasewicz emerges from the observation of landscape, giving tribute to nature in its most findamental aspects. It is about the imitation of nature in a very humble and tender way. With color, texture, light and rythm, the artist creates new worlds as real as the one in which we are living in. For tarasewicz painting is his own element combining ritual and play: an endless experiment with color, rythm and ground. From his painting, radiates joy of creation. “
