Pav Szymanski MA Fine Art Digital with distinction (UAL), BPhil (Ed) (EXON), Cert Ed (EXON)
Painter & Lecturer
I am a fine art painter and video artist with 30 years of experience. My current research project is based on creating visual responses to my observations of people, who are suspended in the vacuum of hypnotic repetition. I have travelled the world interviewing and recording individuals, who genuinely struggle with their existence in the context of their survival. I have gathered substantial primary sources and evidence from destinations across the globe. Perhaps, the most significant research findings were from Haiti and Myanmar and resulted in the production of the most spectacular paintings. They have inspired me to develop new and innovative ways of working and experimenting with image making, which are appropriate to the subject. They combine the best of traditional achievements and the power of contemporary thinking and deep reflection.
I work full time as a programme coordinator for Art & Design at a large institution offering a broad range of Further and Higher Education qualifications. I am also an external examiner for the University of The Arts, London and Academic Qualifications Alliance.
I have been awarded the International Vision Collector’s Award and the Power of Creativity Art Prize by the Contemporary Art Curator Magazine.
Through my projects I feel that I discover my inner fears, longings and re-evaluate my uncertainties. My work seems to be an attempt to explore and question by metaphorical presentation my response to the hidden truths of the world. The essence of the value of these works is in their inherent meaning and an atmosphere, which manifests itself in the dusk of the space portrayed, thus the light may appear, where the hue of colour fulfils clarity and sounds with harmonious melody.
I have continued with the painterly process while repeating Aries’s body in a rhythmic movement. The intention is to arrange a sensation of grace and ballet in the context of anxiety and worries. After all, Ariel has bend her moral spine and made her principles vague and ambiguous. What is she going to do next?
I have been selected to take part in the online show. My piece will also be published in the second edition of The Art Lounge Magazine. The finalists will be announced on the 21st June.
I am delighted by a very genuine. Authentic and deeply reflective post about my work by Nurture Magazine. Thank you!
I have received a personalised invitation from Monat Gallery in Madrid to take part in Liechtenstein Art Fair 2021.
