Jarosław Fliciński (*1965, lives in Gdansk) belongs to the few Polish artists

of the middle or younger generation, who reflect upon the modernist

constructive tradition. Although a long way away from following the great

Polish masters Strzemiński, Kobro or Staszewski, Fliciński utilises grid-form designs

from kitchen towels or table cloths, as well as elements out of Hard Edge and

Pop Art. In the former Zamość academy he realised a monumental wall painting

composed of concentric ellipses, placed over each other and in doing so

generated optically distorted grid structures. In the gallery of the University

of the Applied Sciences Potsdam a strict concentric painting can be seen

on a wall positioned freely within the space.
