Exhibition: Henryk Szydlowski | Fantasy Surrealism

15-27 August
International Art Centre


Henryk Szydlowski, Magic of the Woman in the Red Hat, Oil on canvas, 100 x 75 cm, $17, 950


In this exhibition, Polish born, Perth-based Henryk Szydlowski celebrates over 40 years of success as a leading professional artist. Here we have a collection of paintings which joyfully embody the unique skills and compositional sophistication of a contemporary master.


Szydlowski sees himself as a storyteller who adopts the canvas as his theatre. Setting symbols of real-life objects against planes of vibrant colour, accentuated with glazes and highlights of gold and silver leaf, Szydlowski’s paintings reverberate with a unique and artistically glamorous energy. These elements, long associated with his work, are powerfully evident in this latest collection.
