Jarek Lustych


Rather than shadows of trees Jarek has created new trees that speak a universal and historical language. The trees are in fact a platonic projection of the stone shadows. The stones are older and from a time of previous natural disasters. Their experience combined with the fruit tree or the biblical tree of knowledge speak of a deeply embedded history of the land. The stones could also be seen as an intermediate layer that separates our base nature from our angelic nature. We can meditate on our deeper earthly history or rise into the sky and see the world anew. In time the shadows or rather three dimensional outlines of rock traces, will disappear back under the grass although the few raised stones acting as a kind of outline will still remain to remind us of this epiphany with nature.
