Tadeusz Dominik,
PEJZAZ / LANDSCAPE, 1988
The works of Tadeusz Dominik are one of the most original phenomena in contemporary Polish painting. They are distinguished by a subtle rendering of color and brilliant juxtapositions of hues. In his non-figurative compositions, the artist exposes the suggestive possibilities of color in masterly fashion. The paintings of Dominik reflect the wealth of forms that exist in nature. They take as their primary motif the Polish landscape and its elements.

Tadeusz Dominik (born 1928) studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw, obtaining his diploma from the studio of Professor Jan Cybis in 1952. From 1951 to 1990 he taught at his alma mater, working his way up from the position of teaching assistant to full professor. In addition to painting, the artist produces prints, ceramics and decorative fabrics. He represented Poland at the Venice Art Biennale (1956) as well as in several dozen other important and highly prestigious exhibitions in Europe, the Americas and Asia. Tadeusz Dominik was also the first winner of the prestigious Jan Cybis Prize.
