Synchronies is an art show of Andrzej and Jerzy Głuszek – twin brothers who work in a medium of painting and drawing. Each one of the artists will arrange one floor of the City Gallery in Wrocław to create separate and yet complementary spaces.
The exhibition will be open from 5th of August till 6th of September.
In ancient world magic powers were attached to twins. In Mesopotamia they were taken as half god creatures. Worshiped and admired. Also in India they had great position, it was thought that twins had ability to heal. But things were different in Europe. Supposedly in the 19th century in less developed places of the Old Continent, when twins were born it was thought to be the evil powers who made it. Nowadays it doesn’t surprise no one to see identical siblings, but they are still quite a mystery for scientists and, in particular, for ordinary people. Andrzej and Jerzy Głuszek aren’t the exception. Seemingly sixty years old brothers has no differences, but after a while it’s easy to know who is who.
Głuszeks’ art is as different as their characters. This is why each of them have been given one separate level of the City Gallery to avoid mixing up Andrzej’s paintings with illustrations made by Jerzy,
In his painting Andrzej Głuszek operates with color and light. Using splashes, spectrums and synthetic forms he fights with the unknown, unclear and unnamed. He synthesizes the world surrounded him and pushes it into the surface of his large format paintings. For the exhibition he prepared two series. First, which is going to fill the walls of the entry room, has subtle, melancholic overtone made by pure tones. The character of the other room as well as a second series of his works Andrzej Głuszek called “Predatory”.
