It is with boundless pride and joy that we are able to bring you the work of Constantin Majrowski. For sheer variety and artistic prowess, he deserves our artist of the week award. He paints in a number of styles, masterfully adapting his technique to produce work that is simply outstanding. Born in Warsaw, Majrowski has been exhibiting his work for over 30 years, having first perfected his craft creating copies of the great 17th century masters.
His figurative work stands out for its technical excellence and lively atmospherics. A bouquet of flowers is rendered with a dripping sense of splendour. Each individual petal bleeds and lives on the canvass, creating energy and drama within the image. His pictures of women show bodies that move with a dancerís grace across furniture and bedrooms. Perspectives strike away vividly into the distance as shapes and textures both contrast and blend effortlessly. His subjects are dreaming girls being consumed by flowers and slumber, or jaded lovers waiting in continued expectation. Youth and naivety sit alongside the forlorn faces of experience.
When he switches to abstract work he manages to capture the true essence of feelings and moments with skill and passion. Shadowy indigo centres melt into darkness, bordered by the contrasting edges and corners of half realised forms. Electric whites scratch across the choreographed riots of blues. City lights are reflected into the pale nothingness that surrounds them as building shapes amble skywards. His painting contains subtle suggestions of depth and height, radiating from an emotional heart of darkness. He sees that even a choked up traffic jam contains an aura of fragility. The mysterious qualities of light and season are captured expertly, whether painting the equally intangible qualities of morning and evening, or the pale bliss of a wedding. Majowski is a painter who makes the craft look easy. His work is contained in many exceptional collections across Europe and America and we are delighted to be able to show his work here.
